Week 21 and our featured Artist this week is Sorca O’Farrell. Sorca, an award winning landscape artist from Howth, exhibited in our Easter Snow Gallery in 2019.
She attended D.L.A.D.T. and N.C.A.D., receiving an honours degree in Fine Art, and continuing to complete a H. Dip, with distinction. Her work has been included in the exhibition ‘A celebration of Drawing’ at The National Gallery of Ireland. She has also exhibited in the Royal Hibernian Academy’s Annual Exhibition (2018, 2017, 2016, 2015), the Royal Ulster Academy 2017 and the Hamilton Gallery Award at Cairde Visual 2016.
“It is hard to believe that it is a full year since my solo show at The Seamus Ennis Centre.
The world has changed a lot since then, especially in the last six months, but I am fortunate to have my studio www.sorcaofarrell.ie/ close to where I live, so I have been busy working away. Artists are very used to social isolation!
It is great to see galleries opening up again, to visit, and see work on the walls.
I visited Visual Carlow last week, where I have three large drawings on show at this years ARTWORKS Exhibition. The exhibition is well worth a visit, lots of interesting work by contemporary Irish artists in a beautiful space, with plenty of room for social distancing.
I also just got news that one of my pieces from a new body of work, title; ‘connection’ has been accepted to this years RUA Exhibition, great that it will be open to the public from October for three months, in Belfast. Always worth a visit.
I’m on the shortlist for this years RHA Annual Exhibtion, so fingers crossed. This exhibition requires a few visits, impossible to take in everything in one go!
Stay safe.” Sorca
