Summer of ‘76

An Exhibition of Paintings by Keith Ayton

Keith Ayton has lived in East Belfast for 40 years, but his spiritual home is the north coast of Ireland.  Most of his paintings feature the ever-changing, moody, brooding skies and landscapes of North Antrim and Donegal.

“In 1976 I took my first 2-week camping holiday in Donegal. We pitched our tent in the middle of a thunder storm created by the heatwave. Over the summer the tent remained pitched in the sand dunes and we cycled to it as often as we could for a few days or even a week.

The heatwave this year brought back a myriad of memories and an inevitable comparison to the summer of 1976. These paintings examine those memories and feelings revisiting the place which I now call my spiritual home.”

Keith Ayton

 

“I’ve come back to see where my beginnings have gone.”

Jackson Browne



Keith graduated from Art College in the 1980s, and has worked steadily to acquire what is now a clear artistic voice, producing work of outstanding quality and depth.  His work has been included in numerous prestigious exhibitions, although this is his first solo show at the ArtisAnn Gallery.  A very popular artist, his paintings have found homes throughout the British Isles, the United States and Canada, Australia and Europe.
