Friday, December 10, 2021 – Saturday, January 29, 2022 (CLOSED ON DECEMBER 24th, 25th, 31st, 2021 AND JANUARY 1ST, 2022)

Uplift,” a multi-media exploration of the act of lifting by artist Nina Elder, opens at Waterfall Arts on Friday December 10 (National Human Rights Day). Through a residency at Waterfall Arts (with support from The Onion Foundation) during the summer of 2021, artist Nina Elder created eight large-scale drawings. Her inspiration began as she witnessed the care, collaboration, technology, and resources that are used to move yachts from water to land in Belfast harbor.
