Donald Teskey A Connemara Folio

Past: Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 7:30 PM

Donald Teskey is one of a number of eminent contemporary artists invited by Occasional Press, in collaboration with Ballinahinch Castle, to take the Castle as their starting-point for a visual exploration of the surrounding Connemara landscape. The resulting series of publications presents visual evidence of the artists’ encounters and gives us new insight into this wild terrain that famously tempts and exasperates painters, as noted by Irish Times art critic Aidan Dunne. Compelling and beautiful, the light in Connemara is quicksilver and never settles; water is simply everywhere. A painter well-known for his coastlines, Donald Teskey was evidently in his element.

Together with artists David Lilburn and Jim Savage, founders of Occasional Press, he will present A Connemara Folio.
