Events & Exhibitions
Ever since the opening of The Gerard Byrne Studio, Fine Art Gallery in Ranelagh, Dublin in November 2017 Gerard Byrne has been sharing his time between London and Dublin, in favour of his home city. The upcoming summer exhibitions reflect the artist recent way of life.
June (15th – 23rd) sees Gerard Byrne taking part in the New English Art Club Annual Exhibition in the central London Mall Galleries for the first time. Gerard's charcoal capturing Brighton's 'Palmeira Square in Its Glory' have been selected from over 1600 entries and will be exhibited among the works of the Britain's leading figurative artists working today in painting, drawing and printing.
The end of June (22nd June) launches a solo exhibition Inside Outside & Beyond in the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin, Dublin celebrating 30 years of Gerard Byrne painting the Dubliners' most loved public gardens. Over the past three decades, Gerard has repeatedly returned to the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland to capture the vibrancy and lushness of the flora and dramatic renderings of the iconic wrought-iron architecture of the great Victorian Palm Houses. This exhibition is a unique opportunity to view his work in the very location that inspires him. Organised in conjunction with the Office of Public Works it will be open daily until Sunday 15th July in the Gallery Space, Visitor Centre.
