I'm often asked how I paint. An answer to which is a very expansive!!So in keeping it brief I thought I'd show you an image of various stages of a painting. These are not all the stages, but they should give you an idea of the process in which I add layers of paint. Just click on the image for a bigger version.
So after being refused from this years annual show at the Royal Academy in London, I thought I'd try my luck in the NOT the Royal Academy Show in the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in Waterloo and they accepted my piece! Runs until 17th August!
Date: Friday 22nd February until Tuesday 12th March 2013 Time: Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm, Thursday 10am to 9pm Location: Concourse, County Hall, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is delighted to present the 2013 dlr Open Submission Exhibition. This exhibition responds to a desire amongst local artists for exhibition opportunities and allows the public an opportunity to view the wealth of visual arts practice that is happening in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
The submission process was open to artists who have studied in, are originally from, or are living or working in, the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown area. The exhibition was selected by Dalkey resident and Director of Solomon Fine Art, Tara Murphy. Almost 200 artists applied and it was an exciting and interesting job to select the 47 artists whose work is displayed in the exhibition. The exhibition features a range of work including painting, print, photography and sculpture.
Opening Friday 11th January 2013 and runs until Saturday 9th February.CLICK HERE TO SEE WORK FROM THE EXHIBITION
Snapshots: A Journey Through Connemara 11th January – 9th February The Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre, Armagh, Northern Ireland.
New work by artist Leah Beggs is on exhibition in The Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre.
This new series of paintings is based on fleeting glimpses of Connemara captured in a ‘snapshot’ frame of time. Leah’s paintings are inspired by journeys through the Connemara countryside. From the mountains at dawn or the bog at dusk to the beach on a summer’s day, this collection of work will engage the viewer and bring them on a journey through Connemara.
Leah is a visual artist based in Co. Galway. She has exhibited widely in Ireland and this is her first solo exhibition in Northern Ireland.
I just got news that I have been selected for a solo exhibition in the Market Place Arts Centre in Armagh for Jan 2013. It's a fab white cube space in a beautiful purpose built arts centre in the heart of Armagh city.
Looking forward to getting back in the studio to get the work done!
