Richard Gorman & Samuel Walsh: BUZZ & HUM
“ I am delighted that this joint by two show will be the first exhibition to open in the Gallery in 2017 and I look forward to a very positive response to this work” said Director/Curator, Úna McCarthyBoth artists are well known to Limerick audiences with Walsh a dynamic presence in the visual arts scene in Limerick for many decades while Gorman is represented in the city’s Permanent Collection.
Buzz and Hum is a simple and direct connection to the gallery spaces. The conviction and commitment of both artists to reviewing and revising their respective work is one of clear determination. The exhibition brings the work of both artists together so the rhythms of each artist’s work is allowed its own space while also tuning into the rhythms of the other’s work.
A special publication ‘BUZZ & HUM’ accompanies the exhibition with an essay by Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith which is an elegant insight into the work of both artists.
Richard and Samuel will be in conversation at LCGA on Friday 10 February@ 3.00pm.
LCGA would like to thank the artists and all those involved.
