A stunning exhibition featuring work by local artist Rosella Watton Austin, goes on display in Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Ballymoney Museum from Thursday 10th March until Saturday 2nd April 2016.

Winner of the Bass Ireland Contemporary Art Award in 2002, Rosella specialises in print making, mixed media, pastel/charcoal drawing.

Rosella graduated from the University of Ulster in 1992 with a degree in Fine Art and in 1993 with a post graduate diploma in Applied Art.

She is proud to have won The Bass Ireland Contemporary Art Award in 2002 with her mixed media piece entitled ‘Long Tall Sally’.

Rosella’s work is held in the collections of the BBC, University of Ulster, The Irish News, Belfast City Council and Bass Ireland. Her work is available as original pieces, limited edition prints and cards.

This new collection of work reflects the influence of early renaissance frescoes and the reality that is beyond what we can see and touch - the supernatural.

Admission is free and opening hours are Monday to Thursday and Saturday 9am-5pm and Friday 9am-4.30pm.
