As their first honorary member, Ungerer accepted his place in Illustrators Ireland with grace and enthusiasm. Over 50 artists have participated by sharing their interpretations of Ungerer’s work and responses to his influence.
13-30 September (LexIcon, Level 4)
The group exhibiting their work in this exhibition have been attending art classes in the Rehabcare Day Centre in Bray for many years. The artists are adults with various different disabilities, better described as different abilities. The ethos of Rehabcare is community enhancement - having their exhibition in a venue like the LexIcon allows them to be a visible part of the community.
The theme of the exhibition is Reverie - the paintings express where the artists would like to be physically or as a state of mind, a place for contemplation, relaxation or a pleasant daydream.
These paintings are painted with acrylic paints which allows them to express their love of colour and detail. They are in minimalist frames allowing the eye to be drawn to the painting without distraction.
