Adrian Margey is one of Northern Ireland’s most collectable young artistic talents. His contemporary depictions of Irish landscape, iconic Irish landmarks and musical traditions are winning him a fan base both nationally and internationally. Self-taught and working from his County Derry studio, Margey cites the Fauves, the Irish Impressionists and the indigenous artists of South America among his key influences. Margey combines a kaleidoscope palette with lazy brushstrokes and expressive knife work to create his stunning work.
Although the artist has held a string of successful exhibitions across Northern Ireland in recent years, the St Patrick’s Weekend Exhibition will be Margey’s debut show in the Republic of Ireland. From nostalgic depictions of Donegal, Dingle and Connemara to vivid portrayals of the Wicklow hills, North Antrim Coast and the Ring of Kerry, this exhibition will act as a veritable whistle-stop tour of Ireland. Dramatic Belfast and Dublin cityscapes will be juxtaposed with softer portrayals of Irish traditional music sessions and dancers. The exhibition opens on the evening of Friday 15th March from 6pm – 9pm at the Radisson Blu St. Helen’s Hotel, located on the N11 Stillorgan dual carriageway, the main arterial route from Dublin City Centre to the southern suburbs and the southeast of Ireland.
The exhibition continues Sat 16th & Sun 17th: 11am – 8pm and Mon 18th: 11am – 6pm. Admission to this much anticipated show is free. Visit www.adrianmargey.com where you can find out more information and access an online preview of the exhibition or telephone the Kilrea Studio on +44 (0)7841593762.
