Clouds, Blue Mountains and Black Bogs Life and Works of Paul Henry | Talk at Schoolhouse for Art

Henry, Paul; Dawn, Killary Harbour; National Museums Northern Ireland;

Tuesday 15 May, 7:30 to 8:30pm

Clouds, Blue Mountains and Black Bogs Life and Works of Paul Henry is a talk being delivered by Dr. Róisín Kennedy (Lecturer in the School of Art History and Cultural Policy, UCD) at the ‘Schoolhouse for Art’.

The evening will celebrate the life and works of Ireland’s greatest and world renowned landscape artist who chose to be buried locally in St Patricks Church, Powerscourt in the Garden of Ireland. A clay sculpture of Paul Henry created by local artist Paul Flynn will be unveiled at the event.

It is the 200 year anniversary of the establishment of Powerscourt National School which was previously housed in the ‘Schoolhouse’ in the heart of Enniskerry Village. The ‘Schoolhouse for Art’ thought it only fitting to continue in the theme of erudition by offering an insightful appreciation of Paul Henry during the 60th Anniversary year of his death.

Attendance is free, but registration is essential, email or 01 286 95 94.
