By Madeline O’Connor

ON Tuesday, December 10 at The Gallery In Cork Street, Mayfair, Paul Costelloe will be opening a new exhibition of Irish art, including some of his own watercolours.

James Brohan, Liam O Neill, Kenneth Webb, Jimmy Lawlor and Arthur Maderson along with sculptors John Behan and Aidan Harte will be showcasing their latest work at this exhibition, which runs from December 10 to 14.

Paul Costelloe said: “I am delighted to be opening this lovely exhibition. It will showcase some of our finest artists and sculptors to the London public as well as the Irish in London.”

Martin Davis, who is putting on the show together with Solo Arte Gallery in Waterford, is gallery owner of Sol Art Gallery, Dublin and regularly shows Irish work in the UK at art fairs like The Affordable Art Fair, Art Chelsea and participated in Art London in 2011.

He told the Irish World: “This is an excellent opportunity to purchase and own the most recent work of these sought after artists – a piece of living history of Irish culture!”

Among those exhibiting are Liam O Neill, an internationally renowned wood sculptor who since 1992 has worked from his own studio at Spiddal, County Galway; Dublin impressionist painter James Brohan and Wexford’s Jimmy Lawlor, who depicts Ireland’s beauty whilst having fun with the playful characters he creates.

From December 10, 6.30pm at The Gallery In Cork Street, 28 Cork Street, Mayfair, London. See for more.
