Engage Art Studios are very pleased to present the second exhibition at our new gallery. Chagrin Falls, a solo exhibition of new work by Blaise Drummond, will open on Saturday 6th of July at 6pm and will run until August 10th. The Gallery will be open 11am-4pm Thursday-Saturday or by appointment.
The work for this exhibition which is comprised primarily of landscape paintings has been created in recent months. Working on plywood with oil paint and beeswax Blaise pulls from a range of sources for inspiration, images of driving through mountains, a 1960’s prototype scandanavian summer house, the farm at Black Mountain College – built by the students and staff of that experiment in idealism, a birch copse in Helsinki, John Muir at Yosemite.
We are also delighted to announce that as part of this exhibition Blaise has created a special limited edition print in collaboration with Engage studio member Eimearjean McCormack. The price will start at €150 with the price increasing increments of €5 as the edition number increases. So 1/15 will be €150, 2/15 will be €155 and so on. It will pay to get in early!! This is a rare opportunity to get you hands on original work by an internationally acclaimed artist. The proceeds from the sale of the edition will go towards Engage Art Studio’s new facility in Salthill, Galway which contains studios, a workspace, and a gallery. Engage is funded by The Arts Council of Ireland Workspace Scheme and Galway City Council, Arts Grants.
