I am grateful for the opportunity to spend a week in Cill Rialaig, the artist retreat in Ballinskelligs, Co. Kerry, to make new work for an upcoming exhibition.
A big thank you to Anne from Butterslip on the corner of Rose Inn Street and Kieran Street, for asking me to show some of my paperuts in her shop during Kilkenny Arts Festival 2018.
I am looking forward to showing a new large sculptural paper piece at the .Obj: Digital Handmade Exhibition in the National Design & Craft Gallery in Kilkenny, curated by Nora O Murchú. The exhibition will be opened on Saturday 11 August at 2pm and is presented as part of Kilkenny Arts Festival. I will also run a number of children’s wokhops on Tue 14, Wed 15 and Thu 16 August. The exhibition continues until 23 January 2019.
I am showing some new ink on paper works at the Mountshannon Arts Festival 31 May-10 June. I am also facilitating a monoprinting and a linoprinting workshop on Saturday 2 June.
What an honour to be showing my vinyl floor and wall drawing alongside large prints of My Carlow, a graphic novel by Studio Weave and an architectural structure by Todo Por La Praxis, as part of Town Planners in the Studio Gallery at VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art. A big thank you to producers Ann Mulrooney of VISUAL in Carlow and to Eilis Lavelle and Rosie Lynch of Workhouse Union for asking me and to Jon for helping with the install.

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin, 06 February – 28 March 2015, Paul Bokslag, Sarah Browne, Gareth Kennedy, Sarah Lincoln, Fiona McDonald, Studio Weave
The Pattern Exchange is an exhibition, guest curated by Rosie Lynch and Hollie Kearns, which presents existing work from Irish artists Sarah Browne, Gareth Kennedy, Sarah Lincoln and Fiona McDonald, with new commissions by Paul Bokslag (IE/NL) and architecture practice Studio Weave (UK). Taking pattern as a point of departure, the exhibition explores patterns of knowledge, material production, labour, and patterns of movement and change within urban and natural landscapes.
I have installed a large scale paper cut for The Pattern Exchange and also developed the display font for this exhibition. The Pattern Exchange font can be downloaded for free from the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios website.
The Full Circle exhibition at the Watergate Theatre Upstairs Gallery has been extended until 28th December 2012!
I am delighted that a large piece was selected for Between Lines, an Open Submission Drawing Show at Signal Arts Centre, Bray, Co. Wicklow, curated by Aoife Fitzgerald. Exhibition open: 6-18 November 2012, Opening Reception: 8 November 7-9pm
