'A taste of Ireland' by Michael Fogarty

Michael Fogarty has an exhibition of paintings in the Gallery Tipperary Excel Centre from October 18th to November 18th 2016. The Exhibition is open to the public Monday-Friday from 10am -5pm (with some restrictions on Monday and Tuesday mornings) for further information please ring reception on 062-80520.

Essentially a self taught artist, Michael, who hails from Moyne near Thurles, has a keen interest in, and love of, the Irish countryside, resulting in his artwork being composed almost exclusively of Irish landscapes and seascapes. Of particular interest to Michael are the climatically busy skies which are as much a part of our Irish environment as the landscapes themselves and this is evidenced by the attention paid to cloud detail in the majority of his paintings. Michael has more than one string to his bow having written and self published a novel titled ‘Right of Succession’ which deals with the ‘War of Independence’ a very topical issue right now.
