Online Exhibition- Lindsey Power
Oct 1 @ 6:00 pm – Nov 1 @ 7:00 pm

Due to the venue being closed can we not have our regular exhibitions in The Green Room, instead our exhibitions will be moved online.

Lindsey Power is a Mixed Media Artist living and working in Co Clare. Her work is a response to the balancing of the effects of living with Bipolar. The work explores the fluid dynamic between opposing states of mind.

Chaotic mark making is slowly subdued resolving problematic issues into a functioning harmonious narrative. Paintings are often transformed from the brink of disorder into glimpses of landscapes to be travelled and the ever changing life of flora. The process whilst being explorative is emotionally soothing and aims to open up dialogue regarding mental health issues.

Lindsey Studied at The Chesterfield College of Art and Design before attending Derby University to study photography.

On leaving University Lindsey went back to her first love of painting. She currently is Resident at The Courthouse Gallery and Studios Ennistymon, Clare.

Lindsey is in the process of building her own teaching studio.

Bio
Nathalie Caleyron Donnelly is originally from France but has lived in North Belfast for most of her life.
She discovered printmaking through a workshop in Seacourt Print Workshop (Bangor) 5 years ago.
It was a ‘love at first sight’ experience and she has been involved in printmaking and in Seacourt since.
Her prints are mostly multiplate lino, often with an element of monoprinting, giving a uniqueness to each single hand pulled print within the same edition.
Statement
My prints tend to centre around my ‘happy places’. The safe havens you go to to when you close your eyes and take a deep breath.
My exhibition in the Green Room in March this year (« Happy places ») was a little tour of these special places, friends, cherished memories, favourite cafés…. but coincided with the first wave of the virus and had to be taken down within 10 days, as we moved into lockdown.
Since then, my ‘happy places’ had to be found around the house and in ordinary every day moments. Coffee time, lunch with my husband and daughter, plants coming through in our tiny yard, daily activities around my beloved kitchen table.

Song n°1: Watershed

Our most recent 2020 release and one I’d love the world to hear and embrace. It’s so uplifting to sing  and perform. I love the energy, drive and rise in the song and the journey it takes me through, which ends in a powerful affirmation, which i hope the listener will feel too!

Song n°2: Memories

This song features on our debut EP “Let Go”. It’s been remixed into this funkier version which I love. It’s a song that reminds me to make the most of life and create beautiful memories, to hold on to and to cherish, because after each day, all we have is memories, so we should make them wonderful ones. That’s what we are doing today, with Sounds of Belfast. Despite not sharing this with a live audience it’s a wonderful experience together as a band. It’s an opportunity to create a precious memory of a time when we couldn’t meet with our audience, but still had the joy and privilege of connecting virtually through our Soul filled Sound of Belfast. This I’ll cherish for a long time.
