keeping it in the family

Our current exhibition is The Show, celebrating the work of students at the North West Regional College who attend the Limavady campus. The Campus has been providing further education courses for the local community for over 100 years, believe it or not. You only have to look at the artwork on display to revel in the energy and dynamism of the young people at the college. The work is vibrant, individual and full of hope and enthusiasm for the future.

Now, I was delighted to find out that a Mother and Son are part of the exhibition. Both are undertaking different creative courses at the campus, Mary McGonigle as a mature student on a part-time basis, and her son, Jack, is just starting out in further education. It is wonderful that both are part of the current exhibition – pictured to the right are Mary and Jack, together in front of their respective works, Daytrip (Triptych) and Still life with Apples and Peppers. It seems they are very much keeping the creative talent in the family!!

  • We are so delighted to host award-winning photographer Ellie Davies' first exhibition in Ireland. 'Half Light' continues in our upper galleries until 13 May. Ellie explores our relationship with woodland, forests and landscape by documenting creative interventions in these environments. She also incorporates star scapes captured by the Hubble Telescope. Her stunning work is profound, atmospheric and quite simply, beautiful and out of this world. #elliedavies #elliedaviesphotography #roevalleyarts #causewaycoastandglens #proud #engagement #exhibition #photography #landscape #oftheland #woodlands #forest #trees #treestagram #instaart #contemporaryart #folklore #stories #instagood #inspiration #magic #limavady
