Opening Reception: Saturday, June 4, 6 – 8 pm
Speaker: Susan Keating, Deputy Editor, Irish Arts Review
Joe Wilson is a painter interested in the raw physicality of painting and of being in nature. In 2016, at the invitation of this gallery, he explored the rugged Caha Mountains on the Beara peninsula in West Cork. After many weeks of climbing and hill walking, making sketches and taking photographs along the way, he returned to the studio to make extraordinary paintings that express something about the physical terrain itself and the energy required in traversing it.
Born in England in 1947, Wilson has lived and worked in Ireland since 1979. He taught at the National College of Art & Design from 1983 to 2009.
Mise Éire – variations on the theme “what is Irishness?”
Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, April 29 from 6 to 8 pm
One of Ireland’s most respected ceramicists, Cormac Boydell, has created over 25 large new wall pieces and sculpture which use as their starting point explorations of Ireland’s elemental landscape, the human attributes within it, and our evolution from mythological beginnings through early Christianity to the present.
The artist will speak briefly at the opening. The exhibition runs April 28 to June 2, 2016.
