DERRY artist Adrian Margey will stage a major exhibition of his work at Harvey’s Point Hotel Donegal over the Bank Holiday Weekend with a stunning collection of over forty new pieces depicting well-known Irish landscapes, iconic landmarks and musical traditions.
Hailed as ‘one of the rising stars of a new generation of Ulster artists’ by the Belfast Telegraph – Margey has exhibited widely in his native Northern Ireland, and is considered to be one of the most collectable young artists in the North today.
Encouraged by the incredible success of his debut Dublin show last year, Donegal is the latest stop in Margey’s Republic of Ireland exhibition series.
Vivid interpretations of Donegal Castle, Killybegs, Glenveagh, Glencolmcille, Portnoo, Ardara beach, Malin, Dunfanaghy, Bundoran, Rossnowlagh, Errigal and Muckish sit at the heart of this latest body of work which focuses on the beauty of Donegal.
A number of the artist’s expressive Irish dancer pieces and popular traditional music session scenes will also be on show. Exciting portrayals of Belfast and Dublin combined with nostalgic depictions of Connemara and the North Antrim Coast make this a must see exhibition over the Bank Holiday Weekend.
“I am thrilled to be exhibiting at the beautiful Harvey’s Point Hotel at the start of August. I have taken much inspiration from County Donegal over the years, so it is fitting that I am getting an opportunity to exhibit here.
“I hope local people and visitors enjoy my contemporary and traditional depictions of the county’s best loved beauty spots,” said Adrian.
The artist’s inspiration is wide. He cites the Irish Impressionists, the Fauves and the indigenous artists of South America as key influences, and uses a range of palette knife, finger painting and brush techniques to create his distinctive work.
