Mellow Autumn

Just a quick reminder of our current work on display in Las Rada Wine and Tapas Bar, New Row, Naas.  There is definitely mellow autumn tones to the work – and a sense of loss at the fading of the summer just gone.

See what you think:


A series of pieces incorporating print and hand embroidery by Hannaleena Ahonen.  Her work celebrates the wonderful summer just ending and the abundance of insects busy doing their jobs into the autumn.


Dee Kelly was trying to preserve some of the fading beauty from her garden in this piece entitled ‘Summer’s End’.  She eco-dyed some cotton with peony leaves and over printed with hydrangea petals, using charcoal pencils and hand stitch to complete.


Pauline Kiernan was just about ‘Keeping It Together’ with this piece exploring the idea of loss and fragility.  She used Korean hand made paper, felted, distressed and hand stitched.


Tree bark from the beautiful ‘Prunus Serrula’ forms the basis of Kathrina Hughes work called ‘Bark Cloth’.

There are many more beautiful pieces in the exhibition so pop in to Las Rada for a quick viewing and something nice to eat!

Snippets from our exhibition at Las Rada

I promised two weeks ago to show you some snippets of the work currently hanging in the gallery space at Las Rada Wine and Tapas Bar, Naas.  This is proving to be a very successful exhibition with lots of positive feedback and one, possibly two, pieces sold.
