6 - 24 December
This year the Peppercanister Gallery will round up 2013 with an exhibition of 24 diverse artists. Remembering John Bellany who died in August, the gallery pays tribute to this great Scottish artist who lived life to the full. The exhibition will feature a couple of works in oil and watercolour.
The year also saw the loss of the late, great poet Seamus Heaney who was a patron and friend of the gallery. Both men will be sadly missed by many.
Albert Irvin who marked his 92nd birthday this year, continues to work his vibrant, colourful magic on the canvas. Honoured with an OBE from Her Majesty the Queen this autumn, his new work is as strong as ever.
Newcomer to the gallery is artist Marguerite Horner. Born in England of Irish parents, this is her first time to exhibit in Ireland, and her monochromatic, photo-realist paintings are dreamlike, evocative and intriguing. Sculpture from Sharon Belton and Deirdre Hayden accompany a full and exciting exhibition.

The gallery will re-open on 7th January 2014.
