Self-taught artist Harley Garrett is holding an exhibition titled ‘Inside’ at the Tynwald Library throughout April.
The 17-year-old former Ballakermeen High School student and Barclays 2013 Student of the Year arts category award winner said: ‘The theme of my exhibition is personal exploration of psychological instability, private feelings and emotions, shown through expressive portraiture. I use art as a visual way of communicating feelings and ideas that can’t be expressed in any other way.’
The exhibition, which is open to the public, runs until April 30th, Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.
Located on the ground floor of the Legislative Buildings in Finch Road the Tynwald Library exhibition space provides schools, youth, community and sporting organisations, as well as private individuals and commercial enterprises, with a secure, easily managed area in which to mount Manx-themed displays. There is no rental charge, only a small commission fee for sales by commercial operators.
