Based in Newry, the Gracearts Studio has produced paintings, batiks, sculpture, and prints for solo exhibitions and selected group exhibitions throughout the Island of Ireland for the past 10 years; including the Cavan County Museum, The Waterfront, Belfast, and St Patrick’s Centre Downpatrick. Grace’s work forms part of the art collections in St Louis Museum Missouri, and Queen’s University Belfast; and has been televised by UTV, TG4, and RTE 1.
Grace holds an MA in Applied Art from the University of Ulster, and is a
qualified art teacher, a career which Grace still pursues on a part-time basis.
Grace Digney’s art is rooted in the rich spirituality of both the Celtic and Christian traditions' reflecting the mystery of celtic mythology and religion. For the most part the Celts did not build temples, but worshipped their Gods in sacred groves amongst the trees of the natural landscape. The work produced in the studio reflects the progression of pagan Celtic religion into Christianity. The chosen materials used in production of the work include wax dyes, bronze, wood and stone in keeping with those discovered in archeological finds.
Grace welcomes individual approaches regarding commissions and art workshops.
