Landmarks & Lifeforms – Frieda Meaney & Danny Osborne for Students

This exhibition is about the earth and life and how they change over time.

Two artists made art for this exhibition. Frieda Meaney and Danny Osborne both live on the Beara Peninsula in West Cork. They both love to travel to other countries and enjoy getting outdoors to go walking, swimming and exploring.

They make art about the land and sea and the creatures that live there, or used to live there.
