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

Belfast: ArtisAnn Summer Shows

‘Those Images that Yet, Fresh Images Beget’ by Raymond Watson is the first of two exhibitions at the ArtisAnn Gallery. The title comes from a response from Seamus Heaney to a series of artworks Watson completed inspired by WB Yeats. Here, Watson looks to Heaney’s work creating an imaginative amalgamation of painting and poetry. An exhibition of paintings by Rosie McGurran features a series of works that evoke the idyllic days of childhood holidays, when making daisy-chains and fishing for tadpoles seemed the only way to spend one’s time.

Raymond Watson: 6 – 29 June; Rosie McGurran: 4 July – 31 August

Armagh: Blood Horses

Armagh: Blood Horses

‘Blood Horses’ is a collaboration at Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre between poet Moyra Donaldson and artist Paddy Lennon, with their shared interest in horses expressed through this exhibition with a limited edition publication. In both iterations, word and image combine to evoke the history of our human relationship with these creatures, and the part horses play in the lives of those who work with them. Image: Paddy Lennon
Market Place Theatre: 22 July – 7 September
