The Lewis Glucksman Gallery presents From Highwood to Home. Highlights from a private collection an exhibition on view through 18 March 2012.

Taking its title from a Nick Miller painting featured in the exhibition, From Highwood to Home presents the works of contemporary Irish artists in a significant private collection of Irish art. The selected works each address and interpret local territories, albeit in very different ways. From the thrilling seascape painting of Donald Teskey to the politically charged graveyard scene created by Brian Maguire, each artist has their own individual perspective on Irish life and history. Some artists seem committed to a documentary mode, others depict mythic and imagined narratives. Their different viewpoints reveal an Ireland that is mournful, isolated, bright, tumultuous, and inspiring.

Artists: Barrie Cooke, Dorothy Cross, Rita Duffy, Patrick Graham, Eithne Jordan, Michael Kane, Brian Maguire, Niamh McCann, Nick Miller, Hughie O’Donoghue, Patrick Scott, Donald Teskey, and Charles Tyrell..

The Lewis Glucksman Gallery is a cultural and educational institution that promotes the research, creation and exploration of the visual arts. Located at the main entrance to University College Cork on Western Road, the Glucksman is an award-winning building that includes display spaces, lecture facilities, a riverside restaurant and gallery shop. – www.glucksman.org
