With this new body of work Fitzsimons’ practice has developed both thematically and technically. The artist has painted his typically abstracted planar landscapes or dreamscapes, though a new atmospheric quality has been rendered with layers of thinly mixed paint and washes to create an impression of inhabitable depth.

Taylor Galleries

Thursday 25 September, 6 - 8pm

26 Sep 2014 - 11 Oct 2014

A Selection from Recent Work features new mixed media works on paper as well as Chinese ink sketches, pastels and larger oil paintings on board. Most of the work references the volcanic landscape of Lanzarote and the paintings and drawings in the exhibition are characterised by O’Malley’s typically saturated colouration and her interest in creating a dialogue between everyday domestic objects – jugs, bowls, fruit – and the landscape. Furrowed fields are glimpsed through window frames and stretch out past tabletops and terraces to the horizon, giving her work a depth that draws the viewer into the landscape.

The Courthouse

Friday 19 September at 6:30pm

19 Sep 2014 - 9 Oct 2014

Newfoundland is a record of the artist’s journey and exploration of luminal landscapes and ‘edge-lands’ within Cavan Town and surrounding areas. By examining places through touch, the artist rediscovers and opens a dialogue into a sequence of ever-changing and diminishing landscapes, which intersect between former ecologies and new consumer topographies. The aim of the exhibition is to explore memories that remain embedded in the material fabric of the landscape, and which relate to a common community consciousness which the artist depicts, as a real defined object.

CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery

Thursday 18 September at 6pm

19 Sep 2014 - 11 Oct 2014

Doireann Ní Ghrioghair’s exhibition Kingdom Come takes the debris of redundant, toppled historical monuments and imbues them with bright, lurid pinks, yellows, greens,blues and the gaudiness and synthetics of consumer capitalism. Obelisks,columns and plinths are embedded in the aesthetic language of power and control. Re-imagined here, they become shaky, ridiculous totems to a precarious empire; their potency suffused with frivolousness and flippancy. The solemn austerity of pompous tyrants is disrupted with playfulness and pleasure and the monuments are denied their heroic autonomy.Doireann Ní Ghrioghair is the winner of the 2013 Now Wakes the Sea Award.Graduating in 2010 with an MA in Fine Arts from Chelsea College of Art,London, she is currently undertaking a long-term residency at Firestation Studios, Dublin. Previous exhibitions include Now Wakes the Sea, Kinsale Arts Festival 2013, Creekside Open 13 &’11, APT Gallery London, curated by Ceri Hand and Phyllida Barlow respectively and After the Future, Eva International,Limerick curated by Annie Fletcher. Doireann will be giving anartist’s talk on Wednesday the 24th of September at 11.30am.

Solomon Fine Art

Thursday 11 September, 6 - 8pm

12 Sep 2014 - 4 Oct 2014

Crowley’s latest exhibition is characteristically figurative, featuring close-cropped nudes, intimate portraits and self-portraits, each celebrating his subject’s unique personality and physicality.  The majority of the work is bound together within a context of both drama & melodrama.  Some of it is constituted, detailing the more difficult decisions people have to make, as well as the sometimes arduous consequences that follow.  In some cases the works are grouped together in twos or threes, referencing a common style of narrative that makes the idea of melodrama so attractive to those who immerse themselves in it.  Other pieces are intended to provide a casual commentary on the most inconsequential situations: plants that look emotional, heightened individuals being caught off-guard and ‘unhappy’ clothes.

Lismore Castle Arts: St Carthage Hall

Friday 5 September, 6 - 8pm

6 Sep 2014 - 19 Oct 2014

For a decade Cross has used representations and the skins of sharks as a recurring theme in her practice. In Eye of Shark the presence of the animal acts as a metaphor for an alternative vision, rooted in the symbolism of the St Carthage Hall as a former place of worship. The literal eye of a shark is housed within the walls gazing upon the congregation, yet hidden from view within a gilded vessel.
