A Drawing A Day
25th July – 22nd August 2020
A Drawing a Day focusses on the idea of journaling through drawing in response to the Covid-19 crisis. Artist Els Borghart lives and works in Drogheda and her drawings are a creative response to the impact of social distancing and isolation as the new normal. During the artist’s An Táin Arts Centre Instagram take-over in May 2020, quick one hour drawings explored visually how this narrative evolved over the course of 31 days. This exhibition of work marks An Táin Arts Centre’s return to the Basement Gallery following the closure of the building on March the 12th 2020.
Els is a founding member, co-director and curator with ELS + DECLAN and EDDE Art. She exhibits regularly in Ireland and Belgium. Her work was shortlisted for the renowned Zürich Portrait Prize 2019 by the National Gallery of Ireland and subsequently became part of the Belgian State Art Collection.
