Launch: The Whitethorn Gallery — An Afternoon of Music
The Whitethorn Gallery
An Afternoon of Music
A collection of paintings and sculptures by local, national and international artists – highlighting the works of Alexandra Van Tuyll and Padraig McCaul. The Whitethorn Gallery is proud to host an afternoon of music from the multi talented Alexandra Van Tuyll on the piano, and Padraig McCaul on the saxophone. Both are also very accomplished painters in their own right, and they will play a series of melodies in The Whitethorn Gallery, surrounded by their very beautiful works of art.
Padraig McCaul is a full time artist, originally from Dublin, but now based on Achill Island, where he lives with his wife Anne, and three children. He works with oil on canvas, using a single palette knife and brush to create his semi-abstract, colour filled paintings, that evoke the solitary simplicity of life on the west coast of Ireland. He is internationally recognised, and his work is included in many private and public collections both at home and abroad.
Alexandra Van Tuyll was born a Baroness in the Netherlands. She traveled widely, settling in Ireland in the seventies. Her background is in music and her paintings are inspired and influenced by classical music. She attempts to find the balance between dream and reality. She has had solo exhibitions in Ireland, the Netherlands and the USA where her work can be found in private and public collections.
