Wine Reception & Tour of the 191st RHA Annual Exhibition with RHA Director, Patrick T. Murphy and Academy Member, Donald Teskey RHA.
As a welcome back, after much time apart and many online events, we are delighted to announce that we are hosting an exclusive and unrestricted RHA Friends’ reunion event in the RHA Gallery.
The event will begin with a welcome and wine reception for the RHA Friends in the foyer and will be followed by a conversation and guided tour of the 191st RHA Annual Exhibition in its final week on display, between RHA Director Patrick T. Murphy and Donald Teskey RHA.
As one of Ireland’s finest painters, Donald’s artist’s eye was responsible for the wonderful layout of the Annual Exhibition and the themes that run throughout the rooms and the walls. He is also exhibiting three of his own paintings in Gallagher Gallery. It will be an intimate discussion on the many artists and pieces in the show (523 pieces in total) and a look at all the popular themes and different media that run throughout the show from painting, print, photography, sculpture, architecture, drawing and a small video piece.
It’s a long process bringing this rich exhibition of art to fruition, with artists from Ireland and beyond, renowned and unknown, of all ages and demographics and Patrick and Donald will discuss this process and their roles in bringing it about.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gallery after what seems like a very long time and we are delighted we are finally at a place where we can reunite the RHA Friends at our 191st Annual Exhibition.
1 ticket available for Individual Friends, 2 available for Family memberships and above.
Please note this event is dependent upon the lifting of restrictions on 22nd October.
