An exhibition of paintings by artist Emma Stroude opening at The Kildare Gallery October 5th 3pm until October 27th

Emma Stroude’s new body of work ‘Curious’ explores the spectacle of coloured smoke and powder clouds and the diversity of their use for celebration, entertainment, protest, alert or a call for help. The inhabitants of each painting choose to ignore, react, record, engage with or even act as the instigators of these clouds of colour and the situations they create. Our human involvement and response to this spectacle is the curious question.

The Gallery is located in the charming old Steward’s house, which dates back to the late 1800s.

The house has been brought back to life, to create a gallery of distinction set amongst the grounds of one of Ireland’s finest hotels.

Fine art paintings, sculpture, Irish craft & design are on display throughout; You can also find on the grounds surrounding the Kildare Gallery a collection of contemporary outdoor sculptures, sure to enhance any garden.

The Kildare Gallery provides an interactive space making art accessible for all to enjoy.
