NEW ART GALLERY

XTRAVISION,MAIN STREET, BOYLE

Under the umbrella of the New Art Gallery 5 very different artists come together through off line serendipity with one thing in common- a passion to create beautiful works of art, invigilated by the artists themselves who would love to meet you and share their work.

Published author poet and artist Elizabeth Valentine has a love of the wild landscapes and seascapes which surround her home as well as wild flowers and local places of interest. After recovering from breast cancer she rekindled her love of painting and is currently working on some illustrations for her next book.

Ruth Cadden is a Galway painter that is inspired by all things wild and wonderful. Her themes include animals, humans, hybrids, mythology and Irish landscapes. In 2016 she came in 4th place for worldwide ‘The America Art Awards’ in the Humour category for her painting ‘Pig in a G-String’.

Graham Stewart is a traditional and abstract artist with 28 years experience of painting . His studio is based in Inniscrone in the West Coast of Ireland along on the Atlantic way. Graham specialises in oil and acrylic painting and creates incredibly detailed landscape pieces that have been featured and sold at many exhibitions and arts festivals around the country.

Also featured in this collective exhibition is the wonderful textile artist Geraldine Beirne and Alison Hunter, an incredible textile artist that fuses antique broken plates and China with her felted craft.
