Padraig McCaul Solo Exhibition | 18 May – 23 June 2012

Venue: The Old Market House Arts Centre, Dungarvan, Co.Waterford

Padraig McCaul’s solo exhibition ‘Still Lives’, opens in the Old Market House Gallery, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford on the 18th of May and runs until 23rd of June.

The exhibition focuses on the image of the ‘house’ and how it can convey two very different sets of emotions for the people that view it. For some, it offers a sense of security and contentment, but for others it represents a sense of being trapped, lives put on hold through the effects of negative equity – ‘Still Lives’. A full exhibition statement can be found at the end of this description.

The exhibition opening will be held on Tuesday 17th, from 6pm to 8pm. The show will be officially opened by award winning journalist and broadcaster Ms. Olivia O’Leary. Padraig will give an artist’s talk in the gallery on Saturday 21st at 2pm, no invitation required.

An accompanying video which features a selection of the paintings from the show can be seen on Youtube. The video features a rarely heard recording from Dublin band The Harvest Ministers. ‘The First Star’ was first recorded and released in 1992 as a b-side to their single ‘6 O’Clock is Rosary’ and features Gerardette Bailey on vocals and Aingela De Burca on violin.

Padraig McCaul is a fulltime, Dublin based artist whose work draws heavily on the beauty and moods of the west of Ireland and Achill Island in particular. This is Padraig’s second time exhibiting at the Dalkey Heritage Centre following his sell out show ‘Coast’, in April 2010. His new show follows a very successful exhibition with the Doorway Gallery at the London Affordable Art Fair in March this year.

The four star self catering accommodation at Seacliff Holiday Homes, Dunmore East is the perfect location for all events within County Waterford.
