'New Cityscrape VI', one of the second series of cityscrapes I made last year, has been selected for this year's RHA Exhibition.
'Falling Sky' is one of nine paintings selected by the Irish Embassy in Paris from the NUIG Permanent Collection as part of a 2 year loan agreement. It was purchased in 2013 when my 'Channels' exhibition was held at the University. It will be on display in the embassy in Paris for the next two years.
Got a lovely mention on RTE Radio 1 Arena this evening, Sorcha Kenny and Abie Philbin Bowman were asked for their Top Pick Inspiration Cultural Gift Idea for 2016. Abie Philbin Bowman “For the first time this year, I bought a piece of orginal art, something i thought I would never do. Local artist, a guy called Conor Gallagher (based in a cafe (The Chocolate Factory) near where I live in the upper floors, and he does lovely seascapes and landscapes. If it is a local artist you want to support or work that speaks to you in that way, it is a lovely thing to do. "
I will have work in the Catherine Hammond Gallery Christmas Show in Skibereen and if you want to see what I am doing these days, call in to the Chocolate Factory on Kings Inn’s Street. Blas is a great cafe on the ground floor.
