Uplift,” a multi-media exploration of the act of lifting by artist Nina Elder is the current exhibition on view at Waterfall Arts in the Clifford Gallery. 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.
