Louise Cherry - Escape Boutique collaboration
Escape is about to embark on a new venture and is delighted to announce tit's collaboration with local Wicklow based artist, Louise Cherry. Escape will be hosting an exhibition of Louise’s work in their Greystones boutique from October 27th until November 6th.
Sorcha Murphy, founder and owner of Escape Boutique, has long been a fan of Louise’s work and is very excited to embark on this new adventure in her boutique. It is the first time the boutique will be exhibiting art. The idea for this gallery / shopping experience collaboration was inspired by “Desire” , the 2019 collaboration between the Kildare Village and the Irish Museum of Modern Art where the aim was to bring art out of the gallery environment and to reach a greater and more diverse audience through their retail experience.
Louise, originally from Greystones, currently lives and works from her studio in Wicklow Town. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in solo and group shows, and her art is held in both private and public collections home and abroad. Louise has an extensive art practice that includes painting, photography, film, sculpture, performance and writing. Her current focus, abstract paintings, are an elaborate investigation of painting and deconstruction, created to excite and challenge, these brave paintings will continue to intrigue every time you look at them.
The Escape exhibition will open on Thursday 27th October from 7-9pm and a short talk about her work will be presented by Louise herself. Entry to the opening evening is by ticket invitation only, tickets can be purchased free of charge through eventbrite.
Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
Louise will also be available to discuss her work in the boutique at specified times over the 10 days of the show so keep an eye out on our Instagram for dates and times.
