Kildare County Council Arts Service

Twilight Flights of Fancy - McKenna Gallery, Riverbank Arts Centre

Exhibition runs from January - February 2008.

Twilight Flights of Fancy is the title of the visual arts show which ran in the McKenna Gallery in Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge. The show ‘A Shadow Art Installation’ is the culmination of an Arts in Libraries residency programme initiated by Kildare County Council Library & Arts Service. Shadow puppetry is an ancient artform that uses light and shadow to create captivating images and stories.

From October to December 2007 visual artist Sharon Lynch collaborated with local children at Naas, Newbridge and Athy Libraries in an exploratory shadow puppetry project. The final sculptural artworks combine silhouette figures, atmospheric lighting and mechanical devises to create captivating and magical images.

Sharon is a visual artist based in Galway and currently completing an MFA at the Burren Collage of Art, Co. Clare. She has extensive experience of working on Education and Community Arts Project, with organisations such as Galway Education Centre, Baboro Children’s Festival and The Arts Councils Schools Exhibition Linkage Programme.

The exhibition is open daily from 2.00 – 5.00pm and continues until Wednesday 27th February. For further enquiries about this or other Arts in Libraries Programmes
