One River, One Creek
Oliver Sears Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of One River, One Creek, an exhibition of new works by Donald Teskey. In the summer of 2017 he began to work on a series of paintings that look at both the intimate elements of the riverbank as well as the broader view. The local perspective (local to the perspective of the artist’s home) allows Teskey to countermand the challenge of plein air painting on the rugged coastline of Mayo and Sligo in order to decode a natural world on his doorstep. This series is reinforced by One Creek, a group of paintings that emerged during the artist’s residency at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania in the autumn of 2017. Crum Creek passes through the woodlands of Swarthmore, a slow moving waterway with its own sense of wilderness. Donald Teskey has spent a lifetime embedded in the environment that he depicts. Here, two semi domesticated river systems, each with its own unique micro climate fall under his gaze and reappear on canvas and on paper, perfectly measured observations of time and place.
WONDERMENT at the Claremorris Gallery
Wonderment is a group show featuring work by some of Ireland’s most distinguished modern and contemporary painters including Brian Bourke, Barrie Cooke, Michael Farrell, Martin Gale, Bernadette Kiely, Hughie O’Donoghue, Tony O’Malley, Dermot Seymour, Camille Souter, Donald Teskey and Charles Tyrrell. The show comprises large format painting and drawing by a disparate group that hangs together beautifully as an excellent representation of Irish painting. Three of the artists, Micheal Farrell, Tony O’Malley and Barrie Cooke are now deceased but their work lives on. All of the artists in this show have a connection to the town of Claremorris which predates my Gallery. In fact Claremorris Gallery came out of the town’s longstanding association with contemporary art, that found its genesis in the Claremorris Open Exhibition in 1977 as well as the award-winning cultural activity of the George Moore Society. Wonderment is a celebration of small towns with big skies.
The show will run up until Christmas and opens Wednesday to Saturday 1 – 6pm.

Donald Teskey’s affinity for the ocean and its moods is palpable in Weather Gauge, a new exhibition at The Hunt Museum. He has long been inspired by the sea and captures the essence of the west coast of Ireland in his powerfully evocative paintings of waves crashing against rocks on the county Mayo shoreline.
Teskey is the ‘weather gauge’. As a weather station measures the climate using automated equipment, he witnesses the shifting atmospheric conditions with his own sensory tools. Teskey hears the agitated surf and feels the capricious wind; he smells and tastes salty air and he places it all on his canvas. Always mindful of being in the moment, it is observation by absorption.Teskey’s portrayal of the Atlantic and its environs brings us to an understanding of how our natural surroundings have the power to instill in us a sense of place and shape our identity.
