Terry Bradley Exhibit Set for Omagh
One-off showcase at the Crosshill Gallery on June 17 presents the second only ever opportunity to see the Belfast artist's collected works in Northern Ireland
Terry Bradley has announced his second only ever exhibition in Northern Ireland to be held this month in Omagh. The special one-off show is set for the town's Crosshill Gallery from 7.00 - 9.30pm on Friday, June 17.
The Belfast-born artist’s paintings are highly collectible and internationally acclaimed, with celebrity fans and followers including Ronan Keating, Brian Kennedy, Bee Gee Barry Gibb and fashion designer John Rocha.
Bradley has exhibited collections in Dublin, London, America and Spain but only once previously in his native country, at Belfast's Eakin Gallery in 2009. In addition to some of his best-known work, the exhibition includes more than 30 limited edition prints and canvas paintings, which are each available for sale and can be personally signed by the self-taught artist.
Terry Bradley said: 'I’m so pleased we’re going to make this happen in Omagh. It would be great to see people come along, whether they know my work or not.'
Vivanti and Je t’aime
A former model himself, Bradley’s work is inspired by strong women and ex-models from Dublin and Paris. More recent works are influenced by the Belle Epoque in France, Burlesque dancers of New York and characters from the Belfast docklands area known as Sailortown.
Colm MacRory, Managing Director of Spires Gallery Limited which runs the Crosshill Gallery, said: 'We are thrilled to have Terry here. His art speaks for itself and he’s also authentic and a genuine guy.
'It’s a rare and fantastic opportunity for fans, people from the local community and art lovers far and wide to meet the guy and see his work close up.'
