Ryan O'Reilly's Day or Night
In an ongoing project called 'Day or Night', Ryan has been documenting and creating work inspired by remnants of signage and typography found amongst the redevelopment of the city. For 'Paint by Numbers', Ryan will invite visitors to explore the variety of lettering and geometric patterns to be found in our urban environment and create a collaborative collage based on these forms and fragments.
Public launch: Thurs 15th July, 5-7pm
RSVP via the Facebook event here

Eva McDermott's Home
The beating heart of Belfast isn’t City Hall, the Cathedral Quarter, Victoria Square; it lies in the rows and rows of red brick terraces that fan out across Belfast, housing the lifeblood that animates the city. Each home is different. It can be just bricks and stone or a welcome refuge. It can provide shelter, protection and security. It can be so empty. It can be a place to belong or a place to leave. This image will look behind closed doors.
Public launch: Thurs 22nd July, 5-7pm
