Despite the weather and a heavy rain the opening of a solo show by Gerard McGourty at No Grants Gallery was a tremendous success. With their umbrellas and raincoats in hand, friends and patrons enjoyed a special evening of stories from the childhood, green fields of mystical Ireland and fairy-like creatures, emerging from Gerard’s beautiful paintings

As Martin Davis described his work:
‘He has made his canvas a wonderful exploratory machine, where he investigates different phenomena, through the prism of history, childhood experience, the effects in society of current economics and managements, romance, travel,  in fact the gamut of human experience, and the constant search.’

The exhibition runs until February 24th 2011.
