Karol Mac Gairbheith to be launched as a west Donegal Gaeltacht artist with his debut solo exhibition taking place at an tSean Bheairic Falcarragh Visitor Centre from the 4th until the 31st of august 2017.  The official opening takes place at 7pm Saturday the 8th of July

After a decade practicing architecture in London Karol returned home with a new found appreciation of the architectural landscape of the west of Donegal. This exhibition is a body of work exploring the beauty of the hidden landscape of Dunfanaghy, Falcarragh, Gweedore, the Rosses, and the islands of Inishbofin and Gola.

 

Framing Ideas



Give Your Artwork The Perfect Finishing Touch – Choose The Right Frame.

The artwork you hang on your walls says a lot about who you are, and how you want others to see you. Whether you are hanging original pieces, photographs, or replicas of the classics there is a lot more to the art than the piece itself. The frame you choose can make a big difference to the overall look and feel of the room.

There are a few things that will come into play as you make this choice: such as the Style of Artwork; Mat Width and Quality; Colors in the Artwork; Colors in the Room; and Going Frameless.

There are times when frames are not necessary at all. Galleries often show work without frames, and smaller complimenting portraits are also frequently arranged on walls without a traditional frame. When this is done, canvas quality is something to watch closely.
