Alexandra Morosco's  exhibition Evoking Ireland | a sculptural and spiritual pilgrimagelaunches  on March 4th. It features works by Alexandra in stone and bronze inspired by her visits here. It also includes photographs of the Aran Islands by local photographer Cormac Coyne!

Alexandra has created some stunning pieces of commemorative stone sculpture here on Inis Oírr.

In 2015 she created the memorial for Caomhán Seoighe. The work was commissioned by the Irish Defence Forces, in collaboration with his surviving family. Caomhán  served with the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Lebanon in 1981 and never returned. The memorial  is in the graveyard at Teampall Chaomháin.

In 2013 she carved 'An Chloch' about which you can read here.

Alexandra's  gift is an ability to listen and observe until she gains an understanding of people and place. She infuses her art with this essence to produce beautiful works uniquely suited to their locale.

The exhibition is at the Rob Schouten Gallery, Greenbank Farm, Whidbey Island.  We wish her the best of luck!
