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.

Located in a former carriage house in Center City Philadelphia, Dolan/Maxwell specializes in work by artists from the 1930’s to the present. The gallery works closely with the artists and the estates of artists that it represents. The gallery augments these works with carefully chosen pieces by artists, while exhibiting in 10 art fairs per year and continually spending time with those who come to seek work in the house in Philadelphia.The gallery will be bringing together a collection of works by various artists including Donald Teskey, Dox Thrash, Fred Becker, Morris Blackburn, Rachel Selekman and Steven Ford, at the Seattle art fair this year. Based in Seattle, a city as renowned for its natural beauty as its cultural landscape, the Seattle Art Fair stands as a one-of-a-kind destination for the best in modern and contemporary art and a showcase for the vibrant arts community of the Pacific Northwest.

Weather Gauge

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.





Next up is INK Miami Art Fair, from Nov 30 – Dec 4.

Stoney Road Press will be there at the Suites of the Dorchester, Collins Avenue.
