Gail Ritchie Contemporary Art
The Arts in Northern Ireland are facing difficult times ahead - not only with cuts to the Arts Budget, but now a proposal to get rid of the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure. To cheer up and find inspiration, I spent the day at the Lenbachhaus Gallery in Munich immersing myself in the work of women artists from Hanne Darbouen to Isa Genzken. I loved Maria Lassing's 'Country Girl' shown above. To be painting with such strength and sensitivity aged eighty plus is surely inspiration for us all!
This is where you will find news about exhibitions, projects, events, other artists, travels, experimental work and sometimes things that I just enjoyed seeing! I hope you enjoy them too!
