An exciting and memorable exhibition has just opened in The Green Gallery on the top floor of the St. Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre in Dublin 2. This famous Shopping Centre is the great big glass domed building opposite the entrance to the picturesque St. Stephen’s Green Park. Take the escalator or elevator to the top floor for an amazing view of this beautiful mall and stroll the marble and glass corridor to The Green Gallery at the rear. You will be welcomed by Dermot O’Grady and his staff as you treat yourself to their absorbing and delightful selection of oil and watercolour paintings of the beautiful emerald isle of Ireland.
Ireland Remembered is a collection of over 200 paintings and prints by well-known Irish and international artists who are living and working in Ireland.
All of the works are extremely collectable and for sale. Dermot ships worldwide and for purchases of €2,000 or over, the shipping is free.
Now 25 years in the art business Dermot is highly respected in the trade and you can rely on him for advice and pointers.
O’Grady says “The Green Gallery is an Aladdin’s Cave and our customers keep coming back for more. Most of the galleries artists have gained international acclaim through the years. Unfortunately some are no longer with us. We have very rare paintings by John Skelton (1925 Co. Armagh – 2009 Dublin). Skelton is particularly well known for his atmospheric studies of west of Ireland fishermen and wonderful seascapes and landscapes.
Tom Cullen (1934 Dublin – 2009 Co.Dublin) was brought up in Dublin and had always been fascinated by it’s inner city streets and characters. Working with a knife and limited palette his paintings caught the atmosphere of innocent bygone days long passed.
A very celebrated artist is Jim FitzPatrick who is renowned throughout the World for his Celtic Mythological battle scenes and Kings and Queens of an ancient land long ago. You can buy Jim’s prints of 1916’s Rebel Heroes here too. Jim Fitzpatrick’s stained glass window of Cruithne Goddess of the Aitchen Tuatha (The Ancient Kindred) can be seen in the newly refurbished Bewley’s of Grafton Street a mere stone’s throw from the shopping centre when this world renowned Café reopens its doors this spring ”.
Treat yourself to a fond memory of this wonderful old mystical and magical country out on the edge of Europe. Whether it’s a wee print for €16.95 or a majestic oil painting for €2,000 plus, you will not find a better way to enjoy Ireland Remembered.
