Given the fact that it has been a very women-centric week (although it wasn’t intentional – pure coincidence!) I’d thought I’d end it on the same note. My good friend, the very talented DJ and artist, Mo Kelly is having an exhibition of her most recent work in the Ice Bar of the Four Seasons Hotel in Ballsbridge and you’re all invited! The exhibition opens on 12th December and runs into the New Year. I’ve seen a preview of the exhibition and the pieces are stunning. They are on a bigger scale than Mo’s previous work but familiar elements are evident – landscapes, gold leaf detailing, and city night scenes.
Since graduating from NCAD with a degree in Fine Art, Mo’s work has been well received at solo and group exhibitions at galleries and venues including: Bank of Ireland, Foster Place, Dublin; Arthouse, Temple Bar, Dublin; The Origin Gallery, Dublin; Rathfarnham Castle, Dublin; and at ARTDUBLIN, ARTTRAFFIC, and ‘The Nixon ArtMosh’ (France, Dublin, and U.S.A Tour). Mo’s paintings are also in the permanent collection of Dail Eireann and she personally presented one of her works to Gabriel Byrne, Cultural Ambassador of Ireland.
