Graham Crowley: A Love of Many Things
Graham Crowley: A Love of Many ThingsHighlanes Gallery would like to invite all to its newest exhibition; Graham Crowley: A Love of Many Things, with an informal opening this Saturday 21 September at 3:30pm with opening remarks by special guest and Art Critic of the Irish Times, Aidan Dunne.

Graham Crowley's exhibition will primarily be a painting show with work from 1976 to 2019. It is an opportunity to mount an exhibition that tells the story of a life in painting, beginning when painting was regarded as 'dead', conceptual art was pre-eminent and post-modernism, emergent.

Crowley's earliest work could be considered some of the first appropriationist and post-modern paintings made in the UK. His work was described at the time as 'unoriginal', etc. More widely, punk - an appropriationist movement - was also becoming mainstream. It was at this time that Graham's paintings were singled out by the Italian critic and theorist Achille Bonito Oliva as 'trans-avantgarde'.

Creative Space for those living with Alzheimer's and Dementia
Creative Space for those living with AlzheimerIn September 2015, Highlanes Gallery announced the launch of a pilot programme developed especially for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

After the initial programme, the gallery has continued these sessions which focus on a few selected works from the temporary exhibition programme and the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection. Through the programme people have an opportunity to look at art more closely, in a caring, friendly and social environment, discussing the pieces and giving their opinions in a non-judgemental setting.
By providing a friendly and inclusive environment in which people can freely participate in active discussion Highlanes Gallery hopes to allow participants, and their carers feel like a more active and visible part of the community.
