Artwall: Kara Doherty - Connected

in News

The Leitrim Design House are delighted to host a new exhibition on ARTWALL by local artist Kara Doherty titled ‘Connected’ on view from Wednesday August 18th until September 30th.

Kara worked abroad for many years but returned home setting up her studio in the beautiful village of Cootehall. She has devoted herself seriously to painting since 2016 and is constantly inspired by her surrounding landscape and the spaces we inhabit. Kara loves to observe the movement and textures in the sea, rivers, lakes, fields and mountains which become the focus of her paintings. Working in both acrylics and oils, with a multitude of palette knives and brushes she explores her personal response to the ever changing elements of nature. Kara’s atmospheric seascapes are at times described as foreboding, warning of the continuous threat to our beautiful but fragile world. The ever changing drama of the skies, she sees as ‘the canopy of our world’ fuels Kara’s passion for painting.

This series of seascapes and landscapes can be enjoyed until the end of September in The Leitrim Design House, a not for profit organisation in the heart of Carrick-on-Shannon.
