Hamilton Gallery is delighted to host an exhibition of works by sculptor Leo Higgins and printmaker James McCreary, Aosdana. Robbie McDonald, Director of the Tyrone Guthrie Centre will open the exhibition on Thursday November 3rd at 8pm.
Leo Higgins lectures at The National College of Art and Design and is a Director of CAST Bronze Foundry in Dublin. Winner of the Oireachtas Prize for sculpture in 1984 and 1985, Higgins has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout Ireland.
“James McCreary, Aosdana, possesses all the obsessiveness of the practising printmaker. Using mezzotint, he rhythmically generates tight, abstracted views…mostly in a letterbox format – when he increases the vertical proportion of the plane, it’s as if he’s opened the front door.” Aidan Dunne
The exhibition runs until November 26. The Gallery opening hours are 10am to 5pm, Mon to Sat. www.hamiltongallery.ie
