Blawnin Clancy's Draíocht
A solo exhibition of new works
Draíocht, a solo exhibition of new works by Blawnin Clancy opens in Joan Clancy Gallery, Mweelahorna, Ring near Dungarvan, Co Waterford on Friday April 18th and
runs over Easter and the following weekend.
The Co Waterford Gaeltacht is the inspiration for much of Blawnin Clancy's current body of work. Her delicately painted land and beachscapes have a spellbinding
magic and tranquillity and are fast ensuring her reputation as a painter of great distinction.
Blawnin attended Crawford College of Art and graduated from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. She has been awarded a Tyrone Guthrie Centre Regional
Arts Bursary from Waterford Co Council in 2013. She recently completed an Artists Residency at the Cill Rialaig Project in Ballinskelligs, Co Kerry and is the
recipient of an ArtLinks Bursary 2014. Her work is held in civic, corporate and important private collections in Ireland and abroad, and is sometimes featured RTE's
Nationwide and on Imeall, TG4's Irish Language Arts & Entertainment programme.
A member of BANK Studios in Dungarvan, Blawnin Clancy has exhibited in Greyfriars and Garter Lane Waterford, Greenacres Wexford, The Form Gallery Cork, Lismore Arts
Centre, Mullingar Arts Centre, Waterford Healing Arts Trust, The Old Market House Arts Centre Dungarvan, Wexford Arts Centre, Excel Art Gallery Tipperary, and Joan
