Local artist Jennifer Quigley is the artist-in-residence at Creative Spark in Dundalk.

Jennifer Quigley, a Tallanstown based visual artist, will be located at Studio 14 in Creative Spark until 30 June.

The residency programme is supported by Louth Local Authorities Art Service as a means of supporting the development of visual artists in the region.

Heather from Creative Spark said: “We are delighted to have Jennifer here. She has been busy developing a new series of work to exhibit this September.

“She has developed new screen-printed artwork in Creative Spark Print Studio and has also delivered a screen-print workshop to students at St. Mary’s College.”

Jennifer has been a member of Creative Spark Print Studio since February of 2015. She has previously taken part in an exhibition in Dundalk's Basement Gallery and her work was selected for the Impressions 2015 exhibition at GMIT as part of Galway International Arts Festival.

“Jennifer's specialty is silkscreen printing. Her work is of varying themes from architectural to personal.

“Jennifer's prints are often bright, colourful and striking based on both photographs and hand drawn artwork.

“Her current work is highly inspired by historical content, illustrative art and personal heritage.

“A strong theme of identity and what makes us who we are runs through her artwork with striking and simple imagery.”

“We are delighted to have continued support for this residency programme and we will welcome more artists in 2016/2017.”
