Buzz and Hum 

13 January to 20 February 2018
An exhibition of paintings by Richard Gorman and Samuel Walsh

Buzz and Hum brings together the work of Richard Gorman and Samuel Walsh, highlighting the relationship between the two artists and their work. Both Gorman and Walsh have exhibited widely and regularly since the 1980s, and while their formal approach to painting differs, the two artists share an interest in expressive colour and pattern. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue published by Limerick City Gallery of Art.

David Quinn

3 March to 11 April 2018
David Quinn will show two bodies of work. For the past twenty-five years he has worked on small notebook-sized pages which are mount on wood when they are finished. They are displayed individually and in groups (sometimes as many 75 in one group). He is also working on some larger pieces using plywood and perspex where David further develop some of the motifs and ideas which originate in the smaller pieces. The paintings are abstract and explore the poetic possibilities of line, texture and form.
