Richard Gill Captures Ireland with his 46th Anniversary Fall Show

September 29 to October 8 2018

It has often been said there is a wee bit of Irish in all of us, well most certainly in the Ottawa Valley at the very least.

Many of us, Irish or not, hold a curious fascination with the Irish culture, history and folklore and are indeed captivated by the ancient Emerald Isle. Many Irish descendants claim to share and feel a deep spiritual, mystical connection passed down through generations.

So, just what is the attraction? It has been said by some that it is not an attraction but the “anchor in a spinning universe”.

Ireland has always been on the bucket list for Burnstown artist/sculptor Richard Gill, so last fall, he managed a venture to the isle of green intent with exploring the Irish countryside as muse for his annual fall show.

Richard discovered a pot of gold rich with ancient culture, lush landscape and a genuous people, loyal and full of wit, grit and gumption.

The show will encompass the oh-so-greener-than-green lush landscape dotted with ancient ruins, castles, monasteries, cottages and pubs galore. From Dublin to Galway and Spiddal (where Irish seems not spoken but sung with such a lovely lilt of the tongue); to the Aran Islands, Connemara, Bantry Bay to Belfast (where Van Morrison wrote “Brown Eyed Girl” down in the hollow) and the Giant's Causeway in the north... to name a few. All is captured and shaped in the knowing hands of a sculptor whose second nature is the medium of fired clay in relief.

Come, “failte” and discover Ireland in clay. The show opens Saturday, September 29 and continues to October 8 at Bittersweet Gallery in Burnstown. The gallery is open daily from 11 to 5.
