Tuesday 24th June – Sunday 6th July 2014


Barry Edwards is a Painter and Printmaker living in Waterford City. Over the past two years he has been thoroughly engaged in a personal regeneration of his art and spends many hours painting and sketching ‘Pleine air’ along the River Suir shoreline near where he lives.


Barry describes himself as a serial sketcher and regularly explores areas repeatedly in all weathers drawing, painting and working on several pieces at once .These works are extremely important as they have the virtue of catching a fleeting moment, something that can ‘t be recaptured. It is often the element of accidental encounter that inspires him.


Barry has also started to use these sketches and smaller paintings, along with memories acquired, to make larger works and etchings in his studio in the city.


Barry only started painting again after an accident in 2011. He exhibited in a group show at, ’Hive Emerging Artists’, gallery in Waterford City in 2012 and in the ‘Scratching the Surface’, Print exhibition which was part of the Imagine Arts festival in Waterford in 2012. ‘Moments of Inspiration’, is Barry’s first solo exhibition.

 

Opening Reception: Thursday 26th June, 7-9pm
