Made a visit today to the Cork Vision Centre to see the John Adams series of Cork paintings.
The works are in the main representational and you will recognise the well loved landmarks of the city (such as St Fin Barre’s Cathedral) and some new ones also (e.g. the Elysian). My favourite perhaps is the work depicting St Peter’s Church, the very building in which the exhibition (closes 28th) is being held.
The paintings are mostly large scale, suitable for big buildings and indeed one, of the Blackrock Castle Observatory, is on loan from the City Council.
I brought my guest today upstairs to see the exhibition of Examiner photos from the first half of the previous century (mainly) and she was much more taken with this display, as I was on my first visit some time back. Highly recommended – see previous post.
