The ArtisAnn Gallery has programmed a series of exhibitions featuring established and emerging artists in 2018

​‘A New Land’ is a collection of new works featuring landscapes by emerging and established artists.  Although separated by decades, each artist manages to capture an elusive quality that typifies the Irish landscape and the work should be viewed as a thematic whole.  


The artists featured are RUA members Brian Ballard and Carol Graham, alongside two younger visionary artists Keith Ayton and Trina Hobson.

Keith Ayton was born and bred in East Belfast 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. He graduated art college in the 1980s, and now has a clear artistic voice, producing work of outstanding quality and depth.


Brian Ballard needs no introduction.  A very well respected and admired artist who has lived and worked in East Belfast for almost 80 years, he fully supports and has contributed freely of his time and his talent to encourage the arts in this area.   A long standing member of the prestigious Royal Ulster Academy (RUA), his works features in the collections of many serious private and public art collectors.  


Carol Graham is equally well known and esteemed, having served as President of the Royal Ulster Academy for several years.  An incredibly versatile artist, whether painting people, animals, still life or landscapes, her works glow with a light and luminosity that make them instantly recognisable. 


Trina Hobson graduated in 2016 and has already made quite a name for herself.  Her works have been purchased by several prominent collectors and individuals.  She has had several solo shows throughout Ireland and her work has been accepted by the RUA and by the Royal Hibernian Society.  Expect great things from this young woman.
