Double Vision, The Kilkenny Arts Festival 2019

The Old Dore Factory, Abbey Street, Kilkenny | August 10th – 18th, 2019, Opening Hours 10.30am – 5.30pm

This exhibition brings together two radically different Kilkenny-based artists for a double ‘portrait’ of the county. While Blaise Smith creates portraits and landscapes that record everyday life with breathtaking precision, Eamon Colman blends the figurative and the abstract, capturing shifting weather patterns and the experience of walking the terrain. For this brand-new project, both artists have spent time painting ‘landscapes’ in and around Kilkenny. The result is a fascinating exhibition that offers two startlingly fresh visions of the city, and the county, as seen through the eyes of two of Ireland’s most respected artists.
