Catalyst Artists in Residence at Somewhereto_ Antrim open studio and dinner party

summer of somewhereto_, is a nationwide festival celebrating young people doing innovative and inspiring things in amazing spaces. 

somewhereto_ along with Catalyst Arts hosted three artists in residence into the abandoned shop space in Antrim town; Drydan Wilson, Ciaran Mc Cusker and Rosanna Mc Kenna. One of the artists, Rosanna is hosting a dinner party in the studio space where people are invited to come along to see the art, dine and discuss how the space could be used in the future.

A free bus will leave Catalyst Arts at 5.30pm on Thursday 7th August to the somewhereto_ space in Antrim town and return to Belfast at 7.30pm.

RE-NARRATE is emerging artist Ashley Widman’s most recent body of work. The show comprises a short series of drawings and sculptures inspired by the viewing of a random Youtube clip of traditional bullfighting. In these pieces she explores how, despite efforts to preserve the truth of a story, it can so easily come apart. Recombining such fragments creates a new and unfamiliar narrative, opening the door to numerous possibilities.

The show will be displayed at the Office of Important Art in Castle Court Shopping Centre.
Opening night is Thursday 7th August at 7 - 9 pm, continuing Monday - Saturday 8th - 13th August at 11 - 5pm. Last viewing is on Thursday 14th from 2 - 5pm.

Admission is free. RE-NARRATE is kindly sponsored by PLACE, Young At Art, and O2 Think Big.

RE_NARRATE Volunteer Opportunities:
