One of the up and coming names in the Irish art world, Adrian Margey, will be staging a major exhibition and sale of his work at Harvey’s Point Hotel Donegal this August Bank Holiday weekend. A stunning collection of over 40 new pieces depicting well-known Irish landscapes, iconic landmarks and musical traditions will be going on show.  Although the artist has exhibited widely in Northern Ireland to great acclaim, this will be his debut exhibition in Donegal.   

Margey has two distinct styles.  One he labels as ‘traditional’ – inspired in the main part by the Irish Impressionists.  The other he labels loosely as contemporary.  It is characterised by bold colours and strong form, which echo the aesthetics of modern living. This style makes reference to the Naïve School and Fauvism and has been influenced by time spent in South America.  

“I am thrilled to be exhibiting my new collection at the beautiful Harvey’s Point Hotel this weekend. I have taken much inspiration from County Donegal over the years, so it is fitting that I am getting an opportunity to exhibit here. Vibrant depictions of Errigal, Muckish, Donegal Castle, Glenveagh, Fanad Lighthouse, Bundoran, Malin, Glencolmcill, Dunfanaghy, Portnoo, Ardara and Rossnowlagh will take centre stage at the exhibition,” Adrian told Donegal Now.

The artist is also accepting commissions in 2014, so if there is somewhere special you would like captured on canvas in Margey’s inimitable style, call in to Harvey’s Point this weekend to discuss it with the artist in person.  Exhibition Opening Times:  Friday, August 1, Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 from 10.30am – 8pm.  Continues on Monday, August 4 from 10.30am – 6pm. Admission free – everyone welcome.
