Cait Osborne, an Irish artist based in Limerick City, is bringing her gorgeous Finding Sanctuary art exhibition to The People’s Museum, Pery Square from Thursday, July 28 until Thursday, August 14. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, July 28 at 7 pm and all are welcome to join!

As an artist, Cait has been seeking to develop quietness and rest in the middle of a busy season of life and the paintings in the exhibition are a part of the process as well as the result.

She has been developing the work around the theme of sanctuary, using the idea of the walled garden as a metaphor for a place of rest, peace, and healing.

Using both oils and watercolour, Caits’ paintings are vibrant and full of colour, texture, and life. She experiments with some larger more abstract watercolour pieces on full imperial sheets while her oil paintings experiment with a broader more textural approach.

Cait’s paintings of flowers will include a lot of bright colours and exuberant marks which are intended to help bring some of that sense of future healing and renewal in this present moment. The flowers will tie into the theme of sanctuary throughout the Finding Sanctuary art exhibiton as gardens and flowers remind the viewer of peace and sanctuary.

“Since the first lockdown of 2020, I have been interested in the idea of creating a series of work that would somehow project the idea of safety and sanctuary,” Cait commented on her inspiration for the exhibition.

“As my family and I enjoyed our garden and the park next to us during the lockdowns, I contemplated those who didn’t have access to this kind of outdoor space and wondered if I could somehow bring indoors this sense of being out-of-doors in this refreshing and restorative environment,”

“So, the Finding Sanctuary art exhibition itself is intended as a kind of virtual oasis that will invite the viewer to experience freedom, joy, exuberance, and peace.”
