A solo exhibition of Carrickmacross Lace and Mixed Media by Theresa Kelly.

Theresa first discovered the beauty of Carrickmacross Lace after a move to Co. Monaghan in the 1980's. After mastering the techniques and traditions of the craft Theresa began to explore its potential as an artistic language. Since then she has the pushed the boundaries of Carrickmacross Lace using the stitches and structures to create her own unique style. She draws the viewers attention using these delicate laces stitches and gossamer qualities juxtaposing them with a range of materials from slate to feathers. Her work is held in both public and private collections across the world. She has won many awards both nationally and internationally for her lace design.
