Gilah has just spent two weeks attending the International Painting Symposium in Tourves (8 – 15 June) and Correns (15 – 22 June), two beautiful medieval towns in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France. In her words: “For the past weeks plus I have lived in a 14th C house and painted with the other symposium participants in an 11th C castle… Great work, folks, food, festivities – all washed down by balmy sun-drenched local wines.”

She is now staying in a tiny cottage not far from the Tyrone Guthrie Center for the Arts, a centre for creative artists at Annaghmakerrig, Ireland where she will present her film, Reading the Landscape. She stayed here in 1993 — you can see some of her work from that time here: Drumlin Series and Annaghmakerrig Postcard Series.
