Eileen Meagher: Connemara Dreamin’ | Thursday 26 October  – Tuesday 21 November 2017 | Gormley's Fine Art, Dublin

Gormleys Fine Art, Dublin are delighted to announce solo exhibition Connemara Dreamin’ – West of Ireland Landscapes by acclaimed Irish painter Eileen Meagher.

Eileen Meagher was born in 1946. She studied art at N.C.A.D. in the sixties and was also taught draughtsmanship.

Her landscapes are much sought after and are part of many important collections throughout the world. Meagher’s paintings are part of the National Collection and are hanging in many government departments. Her work also forms part of the collection in Westport House, Blackrock Clinic and the Australian Embassy.

It has been said of Eileen Meagher paintings that the “smell of the turf and the roar of the water emanate from her work. Seldom has a painter succeeded so skilfully in translating into paint the powerful beauty of the Connemara landscape and the Atlantic seascape”.

Originally from Dublin, Eileen now lives on a quiet peninsula in Connemara where she finds inspiration for her highly detailed paintings. Meagher’s detail and use of colour ensure her paintings are remarkable in their realism, while their stillness and peace capture the viewer and portray the true nature and beauty of Connemara.

“The breathtaking landscape of Roundstone Bog with its dozens of lakes set against the backdrop of the Twelve Bens is a new experience for me each time that I see it. I return to my studio with a sense of excitement and urgency to capture these scenes”
– Eileen Meagher
