Exhibition: And Creatures Dream…A New Language @ Wexford Arts Centre


This week is your last to see And Creatures Dream…A New Language as its due to close this Friday, August 25th. The exhibition, which is spread across both the Wexford Arts Centre and the Wexford County Council buildings, comments on the visual arts in the county, with a focus on painting. The exhibition’s title is taken from American poet Susan Stewart’s 2011 piece A Language and references the artists’ perception and memory as they create their work.

The artists on show (which include Robert Armstrong, Eamonn Carter, Aileen Murphy, Breda Stacey and Michael Warren) explore and present the medium of painting in diverse and ever challenging forms. Non-traditional materials and approaches contrast and compliment more traditional observations to provide a broad comment and help root the show in the context of the modern. And Creatures Dream…A New Language closes on Friday with more details available online here.
