Celt-Iberia Traders in New Hope Last week Karen and I hung a bunch of new paintings and prints at Celt-Iberia Traders in New Hope, PA. They bring in the work of Celtic artists (fabric, pottery, jewelry, etc.) from Ireland and Spain. Believe me, this is the classiest Celtic shop you'll find anywhere. Many one-of-a-kind products.We have been collaborating for years and they are the only shop that carries my Irish Quilts. (Real quilts, not the painting series of the same name). They're located in a historic 150 year old stone building right in the parking lot of the Bucks County Playhouse, the legendary summer stock venue that has just been brought back to life after being closed for many years. In AugustI'll be having a show of my new paintings there; the opening is Aug. 17th. Y'all come?
I'm hoping to connect with others who have fallen hard for Ireland. I'm a painter and a photographer... and having our photographic Ireland Calendar dropped by the publisher doesn't keep me from taking a million photos during our almost-annual trips to Ireland. When at home I keep turning out paintings of Ireland, some more traditional, some I call "natural abstracts' which are up close and personal looks at Nature's graphic design.
Want an Irish print?
Most of my paintings are available as giclée prints, and can be ordered on my website, www.maguiregallery.com
The stunning bay of Loughros is a few miles west of Ardara in Southwest Donegal. This painting is hanging in the Wayside Pub, a new Irish pub/restaurant in Lake Jackson, TX, on the gulf coast south of Houston.
This view of Kylemore Lough is just east from Kylemore Abbey in Connemara, Co. Galway.
