Farmleigh Gallery, Phoenix Park, Exhibition

The Farmleigh Gallery in the Phoenix Park is well worth visiting, if only to see the current exhibition of paintings by a collection of Irish artists whose work is surprising in its quality and variety. Do not be misled when you click on the link below and see a painting of a thatched cottage. This is not an exhibition of landscapes but is much wider in its scope. The exhibition is neither too small nor too big and thanks to the organisers brings together a unique collection of paintings that have never before been exhibited together. There is also on sale at the exhibition a book containing reproductions of many of the works on view together with a very informing commentary on the artists’ lives and times. (by Karen Reihill, it is titled “Daniel O’Neill Romanticism and Friendships”). Both the exhibition and the book are strongly recommended,

The exhibition is free and ends on 6th June 2022
