A Meddlesome Meeting is a solo show by Sarah Wren Wilson at the Sunburst Gallery in the Ards Art Centre, Newtownards.
Opening Night: Thursday 31st May, 7-9pm.
Duration: 1st – 30th June 2018.
Sprouting Confusion, Sarah Wren Wilson, (2018) plaster and pigment, 50x40cm.
A Meddlesome Meeting is an exhibition that considers the role of painting in contemporary art and what defines it. In these artworks, plaster is used to cast individual panels that resemble paintings. They investigate how the unconventional use of plaster can change both our understanding and categorisation of an artwork. The pieces created are hybrids, caught between the act of painting and sculpture. The compositions seek to offer snippets of structures and systems, translated in an on-going visual dialogue of abstracted forms.

Ormond Art Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions.
The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen.
We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Art Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond.
