An exhibition by Manorhamilton based artist, Seamus Dunbar, inspired by the old Enniskillen to Sligo railway line, opened at the Higher Bridges Gallery, Enniskillen last Thursday.
Over the course of five months, Seamus undertook a series of one day research walks along approximately 50 miles of the dismantled Sligo, Leitrim and Northern counties railway line.
Combining this with time spent in the studio experimenting with various techniques to communicate his experience through artistic media, Seamus anticipates that the exhibition, entitled ‘The lost and found office’, will create an opportunity for people to undertake their own journeys where they may experience action, discovery and reflection.
A co-founder of the Leitrim Sculpture Centre with fellow artist Jackie McKenna, Seamus has a background in sculpture and has worked in a range of media including stone, wood and bronze; creating a number of publicly commissioned artworks and smaller works for exhibitions and private commissions.
He has also participated in sculpture symposia in Ireland and internationally.
‘The Lost and Found office’ continues until Saturday 10 May 2014. Admission to the exhibition is free.
The Higher Bridges Gallery is open Tuesday to Friday, 10am to 4pm and Saturday 11am to 3pm.
