This Autumn the Riverside is proud to showcase work from Ulster University students, both present and alumni
Wednesday 19th June - Saturday 31st August 2019
This exhibition of striking new work by the renowned local artist and Ulster University graduate Rosella Watton-Austin, has been inspired by the 50th anniversary of the University on the Coleraine campus.
Many of the pieces that will be on show reflect the power of gold; her use of gold leaf on tear jars, horses and images of women bring her subjects to life as if the sun is shining on them. They reflect light and remind the observer that gold has been a source of wealth and power since ancient Egyptian times, over 5000 years ago. Its rarity and value have brought out the best in craftsmanship, and at times the worst in human nature.
The symbol of gold is Au, from the Greek word ‘aurum’, which means the glow of sunshine and it is the only metal of this colour which explains its intrinsic beauty in jewellery and in the decorative arts.
Rosella’s show brings together her own distinctive style of mixed-media technique with gold-adorned objects that tell their own enduring stories of life, love and death.

Deborah Campbell was born in Belfast and studied art and photography at the University of Ulster. She lectured in art and photography in Belfast and continues to be involved in art education. Later on, Deborah swapped city life for a rural lifestyle in Co Down. She draws inspiration from the countryside in which she lives, capturing the spirit of the wildlife of County Down. Her work focuses very much on the now and each of her animal canvases represent a single moment – a snap shot of each animal.
Deborah traditionally uses mixed media to create her paintings, building layers of oil, acrylic and inks over time. The background of each piece is often evocative of the characteristic she associates with the subject creating bold and impressive statement pieces.
