18th July 2017 Special Event in SGC Dungarvan - 'Vincent van Gogh, A New Way of Seeing'

At the SGC Cinema in Dungarvan on 18th July 2017 there will be a filmmakers tour filmed in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, titled 'Vincent van Gogh - A New Way of Seeing'.

The show will be introduced and opened by local artist Sinéad Hehir, and will feature an in-house question and answer session with the award winning director/producer Phil Grabsky.

In the film Phil Grabsky paints a vivid picture of Vincent van Gogh, framing each shot of each piece that fully immerses the viewer in the artist's style and brush strokes.  With great detail of the behind the scenes work that is involved in creating the perfect exhibition, from the colour of paint used on the walls, to how the decision is made as to where each painting hangs and why the order of how this is done is so important.

Sinéad Hehir is a Dungarvan artist renowned for her paintings of local landscapes.  Sinéad also teaches art, craft and design in Newtown School and she graduated from CIT Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork with a BA Honours Degree in fine art in 2009, garnering the CIT and OPW Purchase Prize Awards respectively, and completed her Higher Diploma with First Class Honours in 2010 gaining the Marshall Hutson award for Best Art Education Student, achieving the highest result in the year, and also Student of the Year by CIT.  Sinéad's inspiration for her work comes from locations in Waterford and surrounding areas and she uses paint in an exciting and colourful way.

An outstanding, award winning young artist, Sinéad Hehir's work already forms part of some important private and corporate collections.

Enjoying complete and unprecedented access to the treasures of Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum, this is a fresh new film about one of the world's favourite artists, marking both a major re-hanging of the gallery's collection and a celebration of the 125th anniversary of Vincent van Gogh's death.
