Since 2009, Andy Parsons has worked exclusively from direct observation making large-scale works in painting and drawing. Alongside these monumental works Andy has made a series of more intimate studies of the people around him – friends and family. These drawings are being exhibited for the first time at the Atrium Gallery in Nazareth House, Sligo.
Friends and Family runs until 31 October 2019. This exhibition is part of the Sligo County Council Arts Service Arts + Health Programme 2019.
Atrium Gallery, Nazareth House Nursing Home, Church Hill, Sligo
Viewing times: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm daily
