This joint exhibition is a first by two artists living in North Kerry, who met through a shared involvement in Active Retirement. From initial classes for older people, to a prolific output since, progressing in different directions, but meeting frequently to share ideas and techniques as they develop them, each has gone on to express subjectively their particular experiences and interests. Adrian's early work sprang from a love of lakes and mountains, born from fishing trips in Norway, but has blossomed into surreal trips of the imagination and the adoption of a wide variety of media. More locally based, Bob's express his fascination with the scenery and life of North Kerry, which touch on a wide range of subjects and views, executed in oils, and which attempt to convey the feelings and moods of places and people in this unique cultural environment. They are immensely grateful to Jimmy Deenihan, who has taken a personal interest in the progress of both artists, for agreeing to open the exhibition, which opens on 1st April at 8.00 pm in the wonderful setting of St. John's Theatre and Art Centre, and continues until the 21st of April.
