Artist Adrian Margey will be moving his Kilrea studio to the North Coast this summer as part of an eight week residency in Portrush.

Margey will be working from this pop-up studio and gallery space which will be open to the public each Friday – Sunday from Friday, July 17 onwards.

A wide range of his distinctive contemporary and traditional work will be on sale and the artist will be available to discuss commissions.

Margey’s wife, artist Evana Bjourson, will also be exhibiting her work in the gallery’s portrait room.

The pop-up studio and gallery is located at 99 Mark Street which is just off Main Street in Portrush, opposite the car park entrance of the Ramada Hotel.

“I am really excited about opening the pop-up gallery in Portrush,” he told The Coleraine Times this week.

“The North Coast has long been a primary inspiration for my work and I am thrilled that I have the opportunity to base myself here for the summer months.

“An eclectic mix of my latest work will be exhibited in the gallery and I will be painting there each Friday – Sunday.

“I’m look forward to meeting visitors and enjoying the sea views!” he enthused.

With his original pieces in strong demand, Adrian now holds an average of five solo exhibitions per year.

At 29, Adrian can boast over twenty hugely successful solo exhibitions and a growing following both nationally and internationally.

Musical themes are often found in Adrian’s work also. He was highly commended in the final of Northern Ireland Young Musician of the Year (2002) and in 2006 received a scholarship for the second year running to study voice at the Ulster College of Music. His studies there earned him the title (LLCM) Licentiate of the London College of Music. Adrian currently performs with the Belfast Philharmonic Choir.
