A big thank you to the John Hewitt Society International Summer School for exhibiting Sonya’s latest work ‘Travelling in a Strange Land’. Here’s a taster of this year’s Summer School…watch out for Sonya’s photographs!
Last autumn 26 writers were paired with 26 visual artists in order to respond creatively to 26 treasures found in the Ulster Museum. Each writer was given the same constraint: to write a personal response to an object using exactly 62 words. This anthology brings together the work of writers and visual artists, from the ’26 Treasures’ exhibitions in the Ulster Museum as well as the V&A in London, the National Library of Wales and the National Museum of Scotland.

Sonya Whitefield, from Co. Tyrone, reacted to her hysterectomy by picking up her camera – and the resulting exhibition is shocking Belfast. Jane Hardy reports here.
Open Submission Exhibition
‘Reflecting the notion of ‘a sense of place’, artists from, or working in the local area were invited to submit work concerned with identity, memory and/or the socioeconomic, political or historical issues found in South Ulster.’ For more information on the exhibition click here.
