(Dublin 3, February 28th 2023)
From March 20th through March 26th renowned artists Clémence Prosen and Rebecca Fitzsimons will present a major exhibition of artworks at the Red Stables in St. Anne’s Park, Co. Dublin.
After the great success of their Franco-Irish Art Exhibition, 1rst edition in September 2022, Clémence Prosen and Rebecca Fitzsimons come together this year to present their Art exhibition ‘Art for All Seasons’. The exhibition celebrates the Irish Nature, and its constant beauty through the seasons.
" I think [her] art is very inspirational and captures the essence of calm moments in life and nature. I am especially interested in seeing beauty spots represented in paintings, of a very high standard.’’, said Christine, a collector from Balrothery.
The exhibition will feature more than 30 paintings in oils and watercolours forming the centerpiece of the exhibition. While Spring is settling in and showing its first flowers, in the Red Stables, the visitor will travel through the 4 seasons and experience different atmospheres and moods that can fit every type of interiors.
These artworks are described by Prosen and Fitzsimons as windows to joyful and peaceful moments, inspired by Irish landscapes in spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The artists both have very colourful and soft brushstrokes, expressing passion and serenity for the subjects they bring to life through their paintings.
Prosen and Fitzsimons are very excited to show their work at the Exhibition ‘Art for all Seasons’’ and meet and interact with the community.
In addition to the original oil paintings, the exhibition will be supported by Prosen and Fitzsimons’ Art Prints, Home accessories (cushions, blankets and candles), and Greeting Cards.
The Exhibition will be open from March 20th to March 26th, at the Red Stables, St. Anne’s Park (Clontarf, Co. Dublin) from 10 am to 5 pm. The Entry to the Exhibition is Free.
For more information,
Clémence Prosen is a self-taught artist, a surface pattern designer and calm-life advocate. After living and working in Europe and Asia in the corporate sector, she moved to Ireland in 2016. Her art developed quickly, inspired by the soothing Irish landscapes and the supportive art culture. She decided to develop her artistic practice, in parallel with her engineering job, and connect locally with artists and organizations to show her art online and offline. As of 2021, she focuses solely on her art and designs.
She had her first solo shows at the Skerries Mills in 2019 and 2020. Then, she showed her paintings at the Group Exhibitions Signal Art Open 2019 & 2022, Culture Night Samelah – Le Cheile 2021 and Art Source 2021 and the Berkeley Gallery in 2022.
Rebecca Fitzsimons is an Irish visual artist who divides her time between Paris and Dublin since her retirement from teaching French and English in a North Dublin secondary school. Rebecca has been painting all her life and has taken her artistic pursuit seriously over the past eight years. She is indebted to Irish artists, John Nolan and Róisín O’Farrell whose courses she has undertaken. They are inspirational teachers who have enabled her to develop her own creative style.
Rebecca has a daily practice of painting and the Covid lockdown in Paris provided an opportunity to create many of the watercolour paintings you will find in this Franco-Irish exhibition in collaboration with Clémence Prosen.
Her interests are varied in terms of subject matter, including cheerful florals, Parisian scenes, house portraits and commissioned paintings of family groups. She also works in acrylics and water-soluble oils, but her passion is for watercolour.
