Norway & Denmark

Residency – Kate Buckley
Svolvare- Lofoten Islands- Northern Norway

For 6 weeks during July and August 2005 I lived in the Kunstnerhuset, the Artist’s House in Svolvaer on the Lofoten Islands. During this time I completed a body of work, a series of drawings based on knots and boats. This work was exhibited in Dingle as part of the Kerry International Chamber Music in September 2005. An exhibition of the work titled ‘ New Drawings and Prints’ was held in the Wellspring Gallery, Tralee during November 2005.In January 2006 this work travelled to Kilkenny and was exhibited in the Atruim of Kilkenny Co. Council offices. At this time the exhibition was bought for the café at the Kilkenny Design Shop in Kilkenny.
