Opening to the public Friday 30th November, Meath County Council Arts Office and Solstice Arts Centre present Going Solo 2012: An exhibition of work by Evelyn Broderick. Evelyn, from Ashbourne, will give a special talk on her work and installation pieces at the Solstice Galleries on Friday afternoon (30th November) at 1pm. All are welcome but seats are limited and pre-booking is essential.

Winner of the Meath County Council Going Solo Visual Arts Award - supporting emerging Meath artists in the development of their professional careers, Evelyn works in a variety of disciplines including painting, sculpture and mixed media. Her work is hugely inspired by space and installation.

In this exhibition Evelyn uses symbols and objects of card playing, gambling, and board games. She has sculpted and painted pawns, dice and dominoes using an unfamiliar and unsettling sense of scale and placement. By exaggerating and altering the function of these objects she creates a strange Alice in Wonderland environment which is both fun and a little peculiar. Her work explores the age old concepts that are embedded in these objects emanating from the cultural and social systems that they personify. Notions of power, luck, chance and destiny are raised in a contemporarily relevant way.

The Galleries are open Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-4pm and admission is free. Guided tours are €2 per person and must be booked in advance due to limited availability.
