Gerard Byrne is pleased to announce he is one of the lucky winners in Gemini Print Group competition. The calendar features three of his contemporary British landscapes paintings.

All Gemini 2017 calendars showcase artwork from artists participating in ‘Artists Open Houses’ – a festival that runs twice a year in Brighton. The festival provides a unique experience for visitors. One can view an array of work from contemporary local artists and makers in their homes. The event also offers an opportunity to buy work and chat directly with the creators. Gemini Print are the official print sponsor of the festival. They recently ran a competition inviting all artists to submit seasonal images for inclusion in the calendar, with all proceeds going to the Starr Trust charity.
