Patrick Palmer Exhibition

Autumn Ann Valley GateWe are proud to be hosting a small collection of pictures of local scenes painted by Patrick Palmer.

Patrick Palmer is an oil painter in the great spirit of classical Irish painters. He explores the inescapable beauty of light and colour in landscape and in the details of his surroundings, communicating their significance through the richness of oil paint and his clean sense of design.
Patrick Palmer was born and raised in Co Waterford, Ireland, attended Castleknock College and graduated in the class of 1968, studied at the College of Art, and worked in advertising in Dublin...After a few exciting years at ARKS, the great agency of the 1960's and '70's, he began his world travels, living, painting, finding his bliss... eager to learn and see as much as he could.
Patrick arrived in San Francisco in '79, finding love and happiness at the height of the great days of Rock and Roll. He worked throughout the 1980's as the designer of all tour books, posters and merchandise for the biggest rock bands coming through the West Coast for Bill Graham Presents, then the greatest producer of concerts and events in California. Patrick created great collectible posters for Jimmy Hendricks, The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Ozzie Osbourne, Bruce Springsteen, U2, The Grateful Dead, and many many others. ...And when he finally decided to move back to Ireland to paint and renew his sense of reality after 28 years, he did so with a broader perspective on the light, colour, sea, sky and landscape of his beloved homeland...regenerating in his mind the magical images of childhood and tradition long submerged in the dynamic yet always foreign otherworld of California.

The exhibition will be in the Copper Coast Centre (Wednesday – Sunday) until the end of September.
