Carol Reid White May- June 2019

 Carol Reid White is an American collage artist and retired museum art educator living in Ireland since 1987. She produces colourful, often humorous collages using human figures and scenes from the natural world, often with a beach setting. She has been working on this particular body of work over the past 7 years. As a past art educator in museums and galleries, the art historical perspective is important to Reid White. Displayed in the gallery are a selection of such collage works, alongside three sketchbooks which show the process of her work. We encourage viewers to look through the sketchbooks as well as the works on the wall to see the artist's process. Recurring motifs of armour, birds and beach scenes form a cohesive thread through the selection; however each individual work also speaks for itself.
