Arklow multi-discplinary artist Deirdre Burke is preparing for a solo exhibition in County Leitrim.

'Feather your bed' will open at Solas Gallery, Ballinamore on Friday, May 11 and run until Saturday, June 2.

At a preview event in Arklow last weekend, the works received wonderful feedback.

A variety of mediums form part of the exhibition including print, clay, paper and paint.

Burke describes her work as 'a mixture of semi abstraction with topical and political undertones' and the exhibition features an interesting array of works full of texture and natural materials.

Feather your bed examines the disconnect we have between our natural environment and ourselves.
