Nature's quiet places which bring a sense of peace and connection in the artist and in turn, in the viewer, are the theme of 'Stillness', an exhibition of recent paintings by Maria
Levinge. These intimate landscapes are scenes the artist knows very well. She draws her inspiration from the fields above her home in the Slaney valley and from Annaghmakerrig where she has
been selected for residencies at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre. Seen through the mist of dawn or the half-light of evening, her landscapes evoke the smell of wet earth, turf smoke and
the solitary sound of distant birds, those elemental moments which connect us to our past.
