Virtual Art exhibition Feb 2021
The Good Craic shop in Rostrevor has had to close it’s doors for now (thanks Covid!) but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your hands on an exceptional piece of local Irish art to adorn your walls!! I thought you might enjoy a proper browse through my art space. You don’t even have to leave your couch. I’ve been up to the shop, taken photos of a whole range of art, measured it all and now I’m offering you a chance to view my ‘Virtual Art Exhibition- Feb 2021’. That’s good craic right? I hope you enjoy it. I apologise that my photos don't do it justice but happy for you to view in person before making a final decision. We can find a way! If something does catch your eye just shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know which piece you are interested in. Now sit back and enjoy the commentary.
Susan Farrell is a wonderful local artist who paints and creates in a whole range of styles. The paintings here are primarily local scenes done in oil. For those who’ve been in the shop Susan is responsible for the life size portrait of Giant Murphy that is upstairs. That was her Birthday gift to me one year and I love it. Here is some of her work that I have for sale right now.
Shore Road £250. Oil on canvas. 81cm x 30.5cm.
West Coast £199. Oil on canvas. 60.5cm x 46cm
West Coast 2 £65. Oil on stretch canvas. This is a small piece, 30cm x 25cm.
Spring Flowers £199. Oil on canvas. 40.5cm x 50.5cm.
Fairy Glen £65. Oil on board. Small piece at 25cm x 18cm. This is a lovely small depiction of this iconic Rostrevor scene. This photo doesn't really do it justice.
Fairy Glen £225. Framed oil on board. 52.5cm x 42cm. A larger version of the same iconic Rostrevor scene.
Across the Lough £199. Oil on board. 61cm x 42cm

And the final Susan Farrell piece in this exhibition is The Road Home. £225. Oil on board. Inspired by a photo taken by Colum Sands. 57.5 cm x 47.5cm.
Another talented local artist, Florence Heyhoe, from just down the road is a textile artist. This fabulous wall hanging of flowers in vase could be yours for just £70. It is 48cm x 33cm.
I was very lucky a few months ago when well known Irish Artist Barbara Allen contacted me to see if I would like to stock her prints. Each one is a digital reproduction of an original water colour, signed and embossed with the artists seal. These first few are 40cm x 30cm. £25 each.
This one is slightly bigger at 42cm x30cm. The Irish translates as ‘There are fish in the sea as good as ever were caught’ in case you were wondering. :) Still £25.
Doesn't this Barbara Allen print look smart in it's black frame? Only £37 including the frame. Total size including the frame 47cm x 36.5cm.
I’ve a whole range more of her work in shop which can be sold either framed or unframed. If you like the style but haven’t quite seen the one for you let me know and I’ll send you a few more pictures.
Andrea McCloskey is brand new to selling her art. She came into the shop with a friend last year and is slowly learning how to get art ready to sell. I’ve three original water colour pieces by her in at the moment.
These first two are £60 each. 36.5cm x 28cm
The final piece I have by Andrea McCloskey is £75. 53cm x 43cm
I originally connected with Rosemary Watts from Newcastle, Co Down because I wanted a range of colourful silk scarves to sell. Turns out she does those but also makes incredible art using silk like this totally original Cat piece made from raw silk. £50. 43.5cm x 29.5cm.
Or these silk paintings of the Mournes. I love the vibrant colours!!! The first one is 42cm x 25.5cm and is £45
Or I have this one which is 50 x 46cm and £50.
I have a few smaller silk paintings by Rosemary for sale on my website here if you are interested.
Something a little different is this small but beautiful framed embroidery piece by Laura McClelland. Kilkeel, Co Down. I love how the embroidery spills out over the matt board. A cottage in the Mournes. 23.5cm x 21.5cm. It was £35 but there is a slight scratch on frame so I’ve reduced it to £30.
And lastly I’ve a couple of cute framed prints by Dotty Design. They are 21cm x 16cm. Two quite different prints by the same artist. A classy Irish cottage or some friendly colourful sheep. These small frames are only £12 each. There is a slightly larger version of the sheep print available for £18. It is 26.5cm x 21cm.
Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this ramble through my gallery. Perhaps you've walked right passed these pieces and not noticed them before! There is a lot to look at in Good Craic. :) Please do get in touch if you are interested in buying a piece or want to see what else I have. New things come in all the time! Can’t wait to welcome you all back into my gallery soon. Stay safe!
