Another gorgeous exhibition is opening this Saturday at the Kilcock Art Gallery.
“A series of snow paintings which began last year when we had a heavy snowfall – an unusual event down here on the Dingle Peninsula. While the mountaintops are often white in winter, to have snow down to the sea has not happened since I was a child.” Michael Flaherty
The Micheal Flaherty Exhibition at the Kilcock Art Gallery is being opened by Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sport, Mary Hanafin TD on Saturday 22nd May at 3pm. The exhibition will continue until 12th June.
More on Michael Flaherty’s work:
“Michael Flaherty is best known for his landscapes, spontaneous, lyrical compositions that bring to mind aspects of the work of artists as diverse as Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Henry and Sean McSweeney” . Influenced by the expressionists, he doesn’t subscribe to their movement but empathises with their style. The apocalyptic power of nature in his unpopulated landscapes evokes memories of Emil Nolde but he is doing it in a highly personal style and indeed like the German expressionists his “pictures have a kind of frenetic emotional intensity”
