ARTIST TALK - Gerry Davis 'Procession'
Limerick based artist Gerry Davis will give a public talk on his solo exhibition 'Procession', currently exhibited in Galway Arts Centre. This free talk will look at the artist's process, areas of research and technique. All are welcome to attend.
'Procession' is an exhibition of work produced since 2017 chronicling a dreamlike progression through ideas associated with painting, identity and the subjective obstacles encountered by a contemporary practicing artist.
