Artist in Residence Open Studio
Rozzi Kennedy in collaboration with The Birches Day Care Centre
6th – 28th September 2019
Rozzi Kennedy is an emerging artist from South Armagh and a proud graduate of the painting department at Limerick School of Art and Design. She has exhibited in selected, curated shows within Ireland and her drawing ‘Devil Shack’ was purchased by Limerick City Gallery of Art. Her first solo show – a series of paintings and collages rooted in her South Armagh landscape was exhibited during 2018 at The Alley Art Gallery, Strabane, with support from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland SIAP awards.
She is keen to develop a community-engaged practice. During the residency, Rozzi’s plan is to collaborate with people living with dementia and potentially their loved ones to produce art in a safe, social and comfortable environment where participants can express themselves openly. She hopes the process will evoke some great memories and emotions.
Closing reception: Wednesday 25th September at 7pm
