Enniskillen; Private Life

An exhibition celebrating the life and work of Jeremy Henderson (1952 – 2009) continues at the Enniskillen Castle Museums. Henderson’s chief subject was the landscape of Ireland, particularly Fermanagh, where the beauty of the surrounding area was tempered by ongoing violence, leading him to create large, brooding paintings. Henderson was also known for his public murals, such as those on the William Jefferson Peace Centre in Enniskillen.

Belfast: Flop Sweat

Belfast: Flop Sweat

Mark McGreevy’s ‘Flop Sweat’ at The Mac brings together a new body of work by the Belfast-based painter. McGreevy’s practice has been celebrated for offering windows into imaginary worlds and distorted realities. This exhibition builds on the artist’s collected archive of personal and found imagery drawn from the media and everyday experiences, with paintings that play with the unquestioned assumptions of taste.
Mark McGreevy: until 13 October

Banbridge: Scottish colorists

Banbridge: Scottish colorists

The FE McWilliam Gallery and Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council present ‘Scottish Colourists from the Fleming Collection’, with works from the Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation and loans from National Museums Northern Ireland. The four key Scottish colourist artists, F C B Cadell, J D Fergusson, G L Hunter and S J Peploe are shown, with artists who were early influencers of their work. The exhibition represents some of the greatest achievements in Scottish art. Their direct contact with French Post- Impressionism and other Fauve artists inspired them to create some of the most innovative British art of the period. Image: Samuel Peploe
