Kieran Tobin at The Kenny Gallery 

KIERAN TOBIN – A HINT OF AUTUMN

New paintings from 7 September

‘A Hint of Autumn’ is the title given to an exhibition of oils and pastels by Kieran Tobin. Kieran is a retired Ear, Nose and Throat surgeon who is largely self-taught as an artist. He has had a number of solo shows and has exhibited widely. He spends much of the year in Connemara and this collection is the result of his constant exploration of the hidden places of that area.

Pádraic Reaney at The Kenny Gallery 

PÁDRAIC REANEY – Inis Airc – Inishark, 2002-2018

Opens 12 October

“Padraic Reaney has grown up in a landscape from which not only the people disappeared but the houses in which they lived are swiftly fading out of sight. He is the visual keeper of the crumbling memory. He keeps alive those forgotten houses like the language that was once spoke in side. His work is both a lament and a roar at forgetting”. Those words of Hugo Hamilton’s could have been written as an introduction to Pádraic Reaney’s “Inishark” exhibition.

Manus Walsh at The Kenny Gallery 

MANUS WALSH - VARIATIONS

New paintings of The Burren and of Spain, opens 9 November

“Variations” is the title of an exhibition by Manus Walsh which is almost retrospective in terms of the variety of media he uses and has used throughout his career – oils, watercolours, stained glass, enamels etc. The Burren has been his inspiration since he moved there in the early ‘70’s, and in recent times, he has spent a few months each year in Spain. These are the subjects he explores in this collection.
