'painting+drawing'

From Saturday, 29 June 2013 to Sunday, 01 September 2013

An exhibition originally conceived as a summer type show but now expanded to lift the medium of drawing into its more rightful place — that is on equal footing with painting.

For this exhibition artists from 4 countries have been selected who are working in both mediums with ease.An additional exhibit by Andrew Kenny in the original kitchen downstairs (lately used as a studio only) will deal with our occasional experiences with more paranormal and inexplicable phenomena.

All through the run of these two shows a small representation of individual artists who make their home in Bunclody, or were born and raised here, will also be featured.

Among the artists shown in the upstairs galleries are:

Stephen Lack (USA), Joseph McGill (IRL), Jacob Maendel (USA), Clody Norton (IRL), Bernadette Kiely (IRL), Oisin Byrne (IRL), Claudia Schwalb's "Wunderkammer" (USA), Colin Thomson (USA), John Moore (IRL), Michael Burges (D), John Renwick (IRL), Robert Beard (USA), Maria Levinge (IRL), Lindsay Walt (USA), Claire Lambe (IRL/USA), Hanneke van Ryswyk (Wales), Gerda Teljeur (NL), Oliver Russman (D), Paul Mosse (IRL), Cormac Boydell (IRL), Tim Goulding (IRL), Donald Teskey (IRL), Mick O'Dea (IRL), David Begley (IRL), and Harry Durdin-Robertson (IRL), plus a special installation by Andrew Kenny (IRL).

The exhibition attempts to demonstrate that drawing is a strong medium in its own right and not  something you might consider while saving up for a painting.At least Duerer and Leonardo da Vinci thought so as well........

Opening on Saturday June 29th between 6-9pm at Newtownbarry House Gallery

The gallery will be open at the same opening hours as Newtownbarry House,Gardens and Tearooms.

Entrance to the gallery FREE

This exhibition is presented with the co-operation of Wexford Arts Centre and Anya von Gosseln who also organized and selected it.
