Upcoming Exhibition - Tony Kew

Solo Exhibition

"This & That"

Opening on Thursday October 18th 2007 @6.00pm

"I am a painter who sees and therefore paints in a realistic way. I am sometimes perturbed by the interpretations I see of the female form, especially as they are so-called "portraits". I often wonder what the woman portrayed actually felt about seeing herself depicted as an unflattering, sometimes grotesque figure".

New Arrival

Helen Timon is an artist whose work follows a great tradition, the tradition of skill and technical excellence which she applies to all of her work.

In recent years she has become one of Galway’s more successful artists. Not a household name perhaps, but a painter and with a large and loyal following. Her love for painting has resulted in a vast body of work which has found its way into public and private collections in many parts of the world.

Helen’s creative vision has led her to travel to many parts in search of inspiration. Her avid interest in photography over the past decade has been almost a tool of her trade and a constant source of inspiration.
Her dedication to observing nature is displayed in the way she approaches her abstracts, still life’s and landscapes.

Artist of the Month

Heavily influenced by the techniques of the old masters, Jim Kavanagh's paintings of haunting, shifting skyscapes and landscapes are imbued with Celtic mysticism.

Indeed his recent works, both large and small scale, have a deep organic beauty all of their own.
Be amazed.


The art market is booming! That's why every month we will introduce you to some of our artists who are good to invest in. Famous or not, collectors don't just honour the dead. Living artists are also doing well in the art rush. So whether you choose the art or it chooses you either way, allow your heart, mind and spirit to lead you, as it will be hanging on your wall for a very long time.

It's not so easy to buy and sell art works. It is also harder to value a work of art objectively. You can't go and analyse the balance sheet or test the product. Then there's fashion: art goes in and out of fashion just like clothes. Be adventurous to invest in a living artist, one who will be here to help you to discover unknown treasures that await just beyond the edge where the art lives.
