The Artform summer series opens with an exhibition by artist Tom King, who was warmly welcomed to The Strand Inn by proprietor Edwina Foyle. Tom King has a long-standing relationship with Dunmore East and has visited the seaside village many times to exhibit and teach art. He first came to Dunmore East in 2002 when he was living in the south west of France and returned for many years on a regular basis
Tom Kings’ pieces will be on display at The Strand Inn over the next two weeks mostly depicting local scenery, painted en plain air on location in watercolour or oils. Some of these recent paintings featuring Dunmore East were painted by Tom during his recent art course A Brush with Colour at Artform Dunmore East School of Art.
The following six exhibitions in the series at The Strand Inn will see work by some exciting Irish and international artists, most of them mentors at Artform School of Art. The exhibition will run uninterrupted until mid-September.]
