David’s unique style is influenced by his surroundings, taking his main inspiration from stretches of untouched coastlines around Ireland, especially his native Co. Clare. His images are always a little different, taking the mundane out of a simple scene and turning it into an interesting instant of life, captured through a lens.
glór’s annual open submission gives Clare artists, both established and emerging, an opportunity to showcase their work. This year’s exhibition has been selected by Mary Conlon, Artistic Director of Ormston House Gallery in Limerick.
This exhibition will feature work from Trudi Van Der Elsen; Mary Foudy O’Halloran; Amanda Patten, Dominic McNamara, Marian Killeen, Emma Stewart Liberty, David O’Rourke and Will O’Kane. In addition a Curator’s Prize of €500 has been awarded to Amanda Patten, for her painting, Lift Your Voice.
glór is firmly committed to exhibiting work from both emerging and established Clare artists, and as part of this year’s Open Submission Exhibition, Maeve Mulrennan, Curator of Galway Arts Centre and board member of the Tulca Festival of Visual Art, will deliver a workshop, entitled Presenting Your Practise for all artists who submitted work.
All work from the exhibition is for sale.
Clare based visual arts group Inis Artists are hosting two open days in glór. You are invited to come and meet the artists at a special display of their work and to enjoy a programme of demonstrations of some of the techniques they use across a wide variety of media.
