This exhibition features paintings, works on paper, and sculpture that will fill the imagination with salt spray, the wind's song, seagulls cries, the rhythm of swells, the crash of waves on rocks, and all the glories of our surrounding waters.
Included are Norman Ackroyd’s luminous etchings of the coast of West Cork, Alan Counihan’s poignant boat forms made from bones of sea birds, Neal Greig’s energetic paintings made in situ on the Donegal coast, Imelda Kilbane’s multimedia explorations of Achill’s weather and tides, Avril Lyon’s muscular paintings of sea-side storms, and Teskey’s monumental oils of the West’s rocky coast. Each artist brings different techniques and perspectives to the topic.
