How much?

The Solomon Gallery have just opened a wonderful new exhibition, “Winter Group Show,” featuring an eclectic mix of Ireland’s best contemporary art, showcasing the paintings, prints and sculptures of over thirty established artists and three emerging talents. The exhibition will be open until the 23rd of December and there are pieces available to buy that are on the friendly side of the pricing spectrum, which means you should have no difficulty finding a truly unique present for that one, impossible person to buy for. It is heartening to see the abundance of talent and originality that is thriving in the current art scene in Ireland. A standout collection in the exhibition comes from Comhghall Casey whose still life oil paintings exude so much life, it’s slightly unnerving how photographic these pieces look, particularly the Brown Soda Bread and Bacon studies. An excellent combination. It’s so important to support Irish artists, especially at Christmas so that their work can continue to keep Irish art enriched. / Zara Hedderman
