Waltz of the Flowers by Yvonne Fisher

Tue, 28 May - Sun, 14 July

Conservatory Gallery


Coinciding with Garden Show Ireland, the Conservatory Gallery at Antrim Castle Gardens is hosting this exhibition of floral watercolours and pastels by Yvonne Fisher.  

Yvonne was born in Antrim and later emigrated to Miami, Florida. Her interest in art was sparked when, aged 9, her mother took her to see Fantasia, by Disney Studios. She was so moved by this animated film that she immediately began drawing, colouring and painting and subsequently obtained a degree in Fine Arts from Florida International University. 

Yvonne returned to Northern Ireland in 1999, and continues, now aged 79, to work in several mediums, with pastels and watercolour remaining her favourites. Locally she is known for her dog portraits which are in soft pastels.

Open Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm, Saturday & Sunday 10am – 5pm

Closed: 12 July
