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.
