EastSide Visitor Centre is delighted to officially launch its new Art Gallery space with an exhibition by the renowned Belfast artist, Brian Ballard.
Born in Belfast, Brian Ballard trained firstly at the College of Art, Belfast, and then at the College of Art, Liverpool. He still lives in Belfast but spends long periods of time living and working on the remote and rugged island of Inishfree, off the coast of Donegal.
His artworks are infused with rich colours and textures. He paints directly onto the canvas with vigorous brushstrokes that leave their mark, recording the speed and the depth of the artist’s mind and showing the structural order, as well as the pictorial range, and using bold slashes of rich hues and subtle tones to capture the beauty in everyday objects.
This exhibition features a selection of paintings and drawings, including portraits of locals who are part of the East Belfast ‘Men’s Shed’ group.
This exhibition has been curated by the ArtisAnn Gallery, on Bloomfield Avenue, which is a 3-minute walk from the EastSide Visitor Centre.
Admission is free.
The art is available to buy, and may be collected / delivered after the exhibition ends.
The ArtisAnn Gallery is part of the team that is programming exhibitions for the EastSide Gallery
