l-r: Sherkin artists Majella O’Neill and Jo Ashby

Two artists from Sherkin Island will hold a joint exhibition of paintings at the Community Hall on Sherkin Island from August 7 until August 20.

‘Beneath & Beyond’ is the second two-person show by artists, Jo Ashby and Majella O’Neill Collins, both of whom paint seascapes from their Sherkin Island studios.

The exhibition reflects the two artists’ shared love of the sea and their fascination with the ever-changing seascapes around Sherkin Island.

Jo Ashby said: “Our work shows our joint preoccupation with the sea, from looking down on the shoreline and across the surface of the water to studies of what lies beneath the water and views out to the horizon.

“What is interesting is to see how each of us interprets these themes so differently, from bold, broad, swift marks and strong colours to carefully crafted layers of glazes and subtle shifts in soft tone and colour.

“We see this joint exhibition as an exciting opportunity to share our affinity and connection with the sea and particularly, the ever-changing seascapes of Roaring Water Bay, with a wider audience.”

‘Beneath & Beyond’ opens at 2:30pm on Saturday,  August 7 and all are welcome.
