Sandra Vernon Retrospective
“From Paper to Pen”
a Sandra Vernon Retrospective
Friday 30th June will see the opening of “From Paper to Pen”, a collection of works by the late Sandra Vernon, artist, gallery owner and artists’ mentor. This is an opportunity to view and acquire some of the beautiful pen and ink drawings that became Sandra’s trademark over the years.
For almost 50 years, Sandra was at the forefront of the art scene in Leitrim. Her work, capturing the streetscapes and rural landscapes, demonstrates a keen eye to detail and a natural empathy with her surroundings. Her love of animals is obvious in many of her works. In later years she loved to experiment in novel areas and a range of this work will also be on display including watercolours, acrylics and some whimsical paper sculptures.
The work has been made available courtesy of Sandra’s family, who have kindly agreed to allow Solas to host this exhibition. The work will be for sale and represents a rare opportunity to purchase a Sandra Vernon original. Everyone is welcome.
The exhibition will be opened by Jan Alexander, long term friend of Sandra. It opens on Friday 30th June at 7.30pm and runs until Saturday 22nd July.
