Christmas Group Show in The Irish Arts Review

Christmas 2010

Mainie Jellet at the Peppercanister New work from Andrew Vickery features in the Christmas Group Show at Dublin’s Peppercanister Gallery. Currently working in Berlin, Vickery creates paintings with an appealing immediacy – full of charm, yet with an underlying subversive element. The gallery will also exhibit a collection of drawings and gouaches by Mainie Jellett. Jellett's abilities in pencil and watercolour derived from the brilliant teaching of William Orpen at the Metropolitan School of Art in Dublin, her time at the Westminster School in London, under Walter Sickert, and finally in Paris with André Lhote. She produced an exceptional body of work in the period 1915 – 22, leading into her abstract gouaches, in the early 1920s. Fine examples from all periods are included (until Dec 17) in the upcoming show. Christmas Group Show: 3 – 23 December. Mainie Jellett: until 17 December
