Joined by a very special guest who will also display his paintings, ‘Moments’ will feature brand new works from this exciting and original young artist, who is originally from Slovakia, and living here since 2009.
Petronela’s art work is inspired by emotions and existing artist and paintings. Speaking about her work, she says “I am transforming art and I want to do something different and make it special and unique to the eye. I love the paintings where I can show moments of emotions and feelings, as everybody can relate to this.”
Everyone is welcome to attend on the evening. Admission to the event in the Burnavon’s First Floor gallery is free and there will be a charity raffle at 8pm in aid of Belfast Children’s Hospital.

Collective has been created to provide local professional artists with an exhibition platform to present their work to the public on an ongoing basis. We believe that the diverse artistic talent within our district should be celebrated and this exhibition, in the first instance brings together the work of eight of our most successful artists. Many are well known, others up and coming.
Both individually and collectively there is much to be proud of. We hope you enjoy this collaborative showcase. All pieces are available for sale.
