Kilmeague-based  Newbridge artist plans exhibition

Imagine, a painting by Emma Campbell

Kilmeague-based artist Emma Campbell will stage a summer exhibition.

Ms Campbell, is from Newbridge and attended Newbridge College. She is now operating from her own garden studio and gallery in the West Kildare village. She creates contemporary and abstract art, sometimes combining the two styles. As well as taking part in exhibitions and bringing her work to galleries, she also accepts commissions.

Her first major solo exhibition will take place at The Gaslamp Gallery in Gorey, Co. Wexford. It's titled "Éire í Dáth" or "Ireland in Colour". It's scheduled to take place over July 13-29.

She said: “I'll be using vibrant colours and texture to depict my abstract and contemporary imagination of our beautiful countryside.”
