Mother and Daughter team up in the name of art

​Orlaith and Victoria Hamersley are currently exhibiting  at the Coastguard Cultural Centre Love Lane Tramore  until 30th January.

It is a light hearted exhibition of reproductions by the mother and daughter team.

  Orlaith’s paintings are bright and bold in contrast to the mechanical monochromatic nature of her pencil while Victoria’s art is inspired by Japanese youth culture and fan art. Well worth dropping in and enjoying this unique art!
