Paul Hallahan and Lee Welch will launch an exhibition this coming weekend at the Municipal Gallery, dlr Lexicon, Dun Laoghaire titled “and the tide was way out”.
"And the tide was way out " is an exhibition of new art works by Paul Hallahan and Lee Welch that looks to Utopia and the end of perceived history, adopting very different approaches to the theme. The exhibition is their first two-person exhibition and also marks a unique collaboration as the artists have jointly made two new paintings for the first time. The exhibition, predominately comprised of painted works (acrylic paint, acrylic ink and watercolour), engages with the architecture of the building to pose questions as to how we see the world. The artworks include a combination of figurative based and abstracted landscape paintings.
3 February-31 March 2019
There is also a pre-opening talk with Rachael Gilbourne at 1.30pm in the gallery
