Kenneth Webb – Colour and Texture: an Art Demonstration *Event Cancelled*
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the talk by Kenneth Webb at the Alcock and Brown Hotel on Saturday 15th at 3pm has had to be cancelled.
Kenneth Webb – Colour and Texture: an Art Demonstration
This year, we are again privileged that Kenneth Webb has kindly agreed to demonstrate one of his famous Derrygimla Bog paintings and follow it with a short question and answer session.
Kenneth will demonstrate some of the secrets of colour and texture that have made his painting so popular in Ireland and the United Kingdom for many years. Very recently, the first three paintings sold in the 2017 London Exhibition were large bog paintings of Derrygimla, purchased by a French collector. Others then went to New York and Chicago and more recently China, as his reputation continues to gain international recognition.
Since resigning as the Head of Painting at the Ulster College of Art in 1960, Kenneth has taught students from all over the world at his studio in Connemara each year. At nearly 92 years of age, Kenneth will retire from teaching and demonstrating in the near future, and hand over the reins to his daughter Susan Mary to carry on the school in Ballinaboy.
Kenneth will be assisted as usual by Sara Sue McNeill, who runs her own teaching studio in Donaghadee, Co Down.
