The north western seaboard is again the source of inspiration for a collection of new paintings by Ballyshannon artist Kevin Lowery which opened at The
Abbey Centre’s Helen Allingham Gallery, Ballyshannon on Thursday 6th of March.
The exhibition encompasses all aspects of these beautiful and inspiring waters, from abstract detail to the vast openess of the ocean. A closer look is
taken at the depth and subtlety of the sea and its abiding mystery, reflecting light and absorbing darkness.
Fellow artist, Barry Sweeny, speaking at the launch, confessed to being “jealous” of Kevin’s remarkable talent and went on to pay tribute to local school principal, Conor Carney, for inspiring many if his past pupils to paint.
The opening night was wella ttended with the Lowery and Crowe families well represented and there was an approving nod from Kevin’s gran, Aideen Crowe who attended and would know a thing or two about painting. A number of new paintings and drawings of Ballyshannon and surrounding areas will also feature in the exhibition. Kevin studied Fine Art at the National College of Art and Design from 2001 to 2004. He has exhibited nationally with four solo shows and numerous group exhibitions to date. The gallery is open for viewing from 11am to 3pm, Monday to Friday and the exhibition runs until the 24th of March.
