If you look carefully whilst driving between the market towns of County Down you will frequently see home-made signs inviting you to consider God alongside informal shrines dedicated to loved ones who have died on the road. Nowhere else in the British Isles are these two expressions displayed with as much intensity and frequency.
To local people these familiar ornaments blend into the landscape and are largely passed unnoticed. However they come to life when you leave the comfort of your car, stand beside them and feel the wind, rain or sun on your skin and hear the roar of the traffic close by.
Please note that as the Waterfront exhibition space is in a working building
there may be times when the gallery is closed to the public. If you are visiting us specifically to view the art work we would recommend that you
call in advance to check opening hours. Tel: 028 9033 4400.
