Libraries NI invites you to call in and see an exciting exhibition of abstracts by Belfast artist Ray Duncan, in the GAP (gallery) of Newry City Library from 2nd
This new exhibition, entitled Series 6
, gives the public a unique opportunity to view the latest body of work by this well-established and highly respected artist.
Ray Duncan was educated at Annadale Grammar School and is a graduate of Stranmillis College. For many years he lectured at the Castlereagh College of Further and Higher Education, now part of the Belfast Metropolitan College. He is a founder member of Creative Exchange, a collective of local artists based at Portview, Newtownards Road, Belfast and it is from his studio there that Ray has worked on this latest exhibition.
Throughout his artistic career Ray has produced abstraction, landscape and figurative work. He has contributed both as a group and solo exhibitor, mainly in Northern Ireland but has had his work shown in various galleries in Ireland and further afield in London and New York.
Among his better known exhibitions, Arrivals and Departures
(1998), The Summer of 98
(2000) and High Windows and Bandaged Skies,
(2003) have marked Ray Duncan as one of Belfast’s leading contemporary artists.
