From November 2 through December 10, 2017, the List Gallery will host Donald Teskey: Landscapes, an exhibition of landscape paintings by the preeminent Irish artist, Donald Teskey, who is known for his expressive interpretations of land, sea, and the built environment. Working primarily with large trowels and palette knives, Donald Teskey explores the relationship between atmosphere and material, between the physicality of paint and the metaphysical qualities the medium can convey.
Teskey has exhibited internationally including in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, China, Germany, France, Finland and South Africa. He has received awards from distinguished institutions including the Hunt Museum, Limmerick; the Royal Hibernian Academy; the Royal Ulster Academy; McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College, and Ireland's 1981 Biennial exhibition. In 2006, he was awarded membership in Aosdána, an organization which recognizes superior contributions to the Arts in Ireland; in 2003 he was elected a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin.
