Artist and Poet Maria Noonan-McDermott presents a moving and heartwarming visual and literary portrayal in her new touring solo exhibition ‘Time-Lapse’.

This exhibition is an ongoing project that Maria has been unwittingly working towards over a number of years while helping care for her mother living with Alzheimers.

The Abbey Arts Centre in Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal will host the first of her opening launches on Thursday 10th February from 6:30pm-8pm with a wine reception on launch night. The Exhibition will continue until March 14th.

‘‘The complex extended grief of Alzheimer’s with it’s untethering of time and the archaeological uncovering of the entire life of a parent that arrives with their death. All this creative exploration of grief, loss and love will be reflected through Maria’s paintings, her poetry and installation’’ – The Irish Hospice Foundation, Dec 2021

Funding has been awarded by The Irish Hospice Foundation supported by The Creative Ireland Programme, with additional funding awarded by Leitrim County Council.
