Last night Finola and I went to the opening of a major exhibition of our daughter Emily’s paintings in the Sonairte centre’s gallery in Navan, Co. Meath has. It is a very big and well located exhibition space and is bidding to mount exhibitions of national as well as local artists
Emily’s work is exhibited with that of another Meath artist, Carol O Connor. Emily focuses on representations of people, and explores, through her art , their search for identity. Her work can be seen on her website at Emily Bruton
We were delighted that Emily’s aunt ,Caroline Ponchon flew over from Paris especially for the exhibition. Many of our family and friends were there. It was a great home coming for us.
The Exhibition was opened by the Chairman of Meath County Council, Bill Carey. Bill has represented his locality on Meath co Council since 1967, a remarkable record of public service
The exhibition will run for the next three weeks and is open to the public.
