“Where I Escape To” – Art Exhibition by Loretta Costelo

On Friday 1st November, artist Loretta Costelo launched her exciting new exhibition, “Where I Escape To”, in the Bob Traynor Gallery at Tuar Ard. This is the first solo show for Loretta – her painting varies in style and she uses many different surfaces including paper, board, and canvas, each lending their own quality to the medium that’s applied.
Loretta comments: “I love to experiment with new materials, exploring the possibilities reaps its own rewards. Often a discarded work whether it be on paper, a photograph, or board inspires my creativity, it may become the main focus for my next work. To rejuvenate or manipulate what was once scrapped, gives me satisfaction, a sense of purpose and accomplishment.” Loretta’s exhibition will be on display in Tuar Ard until the end of November, and is free to view by all from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
