ST Patrick's Celebration: An exhibition of local Irish artists

Showcasing the work of Bernard Canavan, Charles Gaston, Frank Reilly, Luke Canavan & Patrick Thornton

BAR Gallery

Thursday 5th March 2015 - Saturday 21st March 2015
Tues-Friday 12pm-6pm, Saturday 2pm-6pm
For the St Patrick's Day celebrations, BAR will be hosting an exhibition of five unique local artists each reflecting in their work and in separate ways the impact of the Irish diaspora. The exhibition will launch on Thursday 5th March 6pm-9pm with an evening of live music and entertainment.
The artists exhibiting include Bernard Canavan whose work is well known, particularly his 'emigrant’ pictures from renowned shows in the West End and Ireland. Charles Gaston is well known for his depiction of traditional Irish landscapes, and his work in this show is a haunting Irish cottage set in the hills. Frank Reilly is also a well-known figure in Cricklewood both as musician and songwriter, but this is the first show of his paintings, which are of memories of the County Cavan world of horses and farms, where in his youth he was a farrier. Luke Canavan is a portrait painter, and the show will include his recent commissioned portrait of the poet, Eddie Linden. The most unusual work is that of Patrick Thornton, who only took up painting in his sixties and has produced a large body of work, as much a tribute to his industry as to his artistry. All exhibited artwork is for sale.
The exhibition is supported by the Brent Ward Working Fund.
