When artist/goldsmith Ruth McEwan-Lyon returned to Northern Ireland after a stint in Malaysia, she never thought she'd be jetting off around the world again with her new innovative work.  But thanks to an invitation from the Sister City Prints Group in Adelaide, she is heading to the launch event in Adelaide on 16th Mar with some of her jewellery ( and 3 new sculptural pieces of work.  The Exhibition is being held at the West Thebarton Gallery in Adelaide from 15th March to 15 April 2018 but will hopefully tour the globe.  The project has seen 11 Australian contemporary printmakers collaborate with an international artist and Ruth is the representative from UK/Ireland.  "We've had to work across great distances to come up with joint ideas about a particular topic - in my case, The Dark Hedges.  It has been great to see how the partners relationship would develop and to see what would come out of our work.  It's been a fabulous enlightening journey" Ruth has said.  Details of the exhibition if any of your 'rellies' in Australia would like to attend can be found at  Ruth will be in Australia from 8 - 2o Mar if anyone would like to meet her in person. 

Thank you to the following artists for their collaborative assistance, in helping me to making my designs, ceramics Patricia Millar, glass Keith Sheppard, wood turning Bobby Gilbert, photography Steve McEwan-Lyon, Supported by Ards & North Down Borough Council, Robyn Finlay inspirational artist partner and Andrea Przygonski Sister City Prints Exhibition organiser.
