Those of you who live in Galway, or are planning a visit in the coming weeks, should swing by the Kenny Gallery to view “The Lore of Places”, 50 new paintings by Donegal artist, Brian Ferran. The images on the web site don’t do the beautiful pieces credit, especially since so many of them feature gold leaf.
The inspiration for the artwork comes from Amra Cholum Chille, also known as Dallan’s Elegy for Colmcille, which is one of the first datable works of Irish literature (597). Dallan says of Colmcille: “He was learned in the lore of places.”
The exhibition will continue until the 13th of March.
