Visitors to the area can see a new exhibition of ceramics and sculpture from artist Eleanor Wheeler.
Eleanor studied ceramics and sculpture in Aberdeen and Cardiff, completing a PhD in architectural ceramics and public art at Northumbria University. Upon returning to Northern Ireland, she has specialized in making large scale sculpture for public spaces, buildings and gardens, including
the Gasworks, Belfast, Market Square in Armagh, The Mater Hospital and lately, Drumglass Park in Belfast. In between commissions, Eleanor travels extensively and journeys have included cycling through the Himalayas from Srinagar to Shimla, or along the Danube from its source in the Black Forest to the Black Sea. These journeys invariably generate ideas that inspire new work and nurture the artist’s lifelong fascination with animals and birds and their symbolic cultural significance across countries, transcending time and place.
Join Eleanor in our galleries on Saturday 4 August from 13.00 - 16:00 for some fantastic participatory activities for all ages where you can make or draw your own animals and imaginative beasties inspired by her exhibition.
