Beach days

We are delighted whenever Cork artist Keith Anderson has a new piece to share, this is his latest oil on canvas painting of Fountainstown Beach in County Cork.

Keith tells us: “I took the reference photo for this painting a few weeks ago during a period of good weather, and the sky was really blue! It could easily be confused with Spain! To learn more about his work, visit www.keithandersonart.ie/

Cork-based artist Oonagh Hurley works from her studio in Marina Commercial Park. She has an exciting exhibition, titled Women Unremembered in the County Library Gallery, running until May 13. This is a series of portraits of women whose remarkable achievements have languished in the shadow of history.
