Brian McCarthy’s solo exhibition opened last Thursday (14th October) in The Keeling Gallery in Clarendon Street, Dublin 2.  The opening was performed by RTE’s Joe Duffy, himself a student and protégé of artist Brian McCarthy.

Brian McCarthy is one of Ireland’s foremost realist artists with a career that goes back to the Irish Exhibition of Living Art at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in 1981.  This exhibition of his recent paintings includes Boomtown, a short series of canvases reflecting this artist’s unique take on the last few climactic years in Ireland.
