DERVAL_FREEMAN_WEB1 Edit crop.jpg

An exhibition of recent paintings by Derval Freeman go on exhibit at Ranelagh Arts, Dublin 6, Thursday May 24th to June 4th 2018. With special guest speaker Michael Gemmell.

‘I hope to bring a piece of the forest and my surrounding rural landscape into the city for a little space in time.. I have a passion for exploring forests and being surrounded by the sight, smells and sounds. It takes me back to my childhood when I was just a little thing full of wonder and innocence. How the world has changed and everything around us.. seeing life and how the cycle of old and new continues from one into the next.. The ‘broken trees’ that stand out in the open spaces of the landscape recall these such thoughts..’

This exhibition will be an experience not to be missed. See you there!

Upcoming Exhibition

Pieces of recently finished painting for my next upcoming solo exhibition in Dublin in a few weeks. Details to follow.

Christmas Exhibition Enniskerry

I am delighted to be joining other artists next week for the Annual Christmas Art Exhibition 2017 at Schoolhouse For Art  The Square, Enniskerry Village, Co. Wicklow. The show opens next Friday evening on the 1st of December at 7pm and I will have 3 of my most recent new paintings on exhibit.

Enniskerry is not too far from the places I haunt for inspiration. All my current series is influenced and drawn from the beauty and wonder of nature in the surrounding environment of Djouce, Crone, Maulin and the open landscape of the Wicklow mountains.
