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.
