I was recently at a great art exhibition in Bray with my sister. It was held in the Cornerstone Church of the Well in Bray and was the 18th annual art exhibition by Bray Churches Together. Organised by one of the artists whose work was on display Peter Growney, the exhibition displayed a host of stunning pieces showing the immense talent there is via numerous wonderfully crafted pieces such as the acrylic beauty of Stripes, The Boxer and Colours of Autumn by Avril Stanley, the fun of It’s Magic, Disappearing Magic and Magic Stars by Ann Hardigan, the realism and colour of Ray Cranley’s Bray Seafront 1950s, In The Dargle and The Turkish Baths Bray and the originality of Peter Growney’s Scene From Kilcoole to Wicklow, Candy Kiosks and Bray Bandstand. Further highlights included Paul Carroll’s work with Blue Eyed Girl and The Fisherman’s First Love, David Walsh’s Dunlaoghaire Yacht 1, 2 and 3 on print, David Fitzgerald’s Chris’s Chalice and Taylor Swift, Jean Poutch’s Powerscourt River Walk, Grafton Street and London Side Street and Meave Spotswood’s Blue Jug, Badgers and Resting. These were the highlights for me but to be honest you couldn’t look anywhere without seeing stunning work and been really happy that there is so much amazing creativity and talent out there. There was no bad paintings. Brilliant exhibition.
