Barry McCarthy show runs to April 30

Centre Well­ington artist Barry McCarthy opened a new show here on April 18 at the Loch Gallery at  16 Hazelton Avenue.

McCarthy has based his subject matter over the years on the east coast and Centre Well­ington, particularly the Elora gorge, and has developed an outstanding watercolour tech­nique to convey the soft im­pressionist light.

In his current work, he has also turned to oil painting and refined the light and trans­parency that made his water­colours so memorable.

Anyone wanting to see some of the paintings can visit lochgallery.­com. Several have already been sold.
