icap Christmas Cards

Why we need your help

2020 has been a strange year for all and as we fast approach Christmas for the year that is in it we collaborated with the wonderful Barbara Stanley Gallery to design some fantastic Christmas Cards to send to our nearest and dearest to let them know we are thinking of them either at home or abroad. Some of us will not be able to make the yearly pilgrimage to the Emerald Isle but we hope that our cards will help communicate your Christmas wishes.

The artists have kindly donated their images for our 2020 cards and below is a short bio on each card and artist. Our sincere thanks of course to Barbara for her ongoing support of icap and the work that we do.

We hope you enjoy our cards, and we thank you for helping us continue the work that we do for the community in Britain.

There are 10 cards of mixed designs per pack with envelopes and cost is £10 per pack + P&P. 

To order more than 2 packs of cards and receive price for postage please call 0207 272 7906 or email tara@icap.org.uk

Atlantic Storm - Cloe Cloherty

Born of Irish parents in 1964, Cloe graduated from Goldsmith’s College, London with a degree in Fine Art and History of Art.In her landscapes, Cloe draws on the Irish countryside and coastline and is inspired by the West Coast and Donegal. She applies bold thick strokes of paint to the canvas using a palette knife, which further enhances the energy, intensity and beauty of her images.

“My paintings are an emotional expressive evocative response to the savage beauty, ever changing light, colour and atmosphere of the places I paint. I try to absorb the scenes before me with all my senses. The visual delight of a transient mist enveloping the cliffs and beyond. 

Gleniff Winter – Cormac O Leary

Cormac O’Leary was born in Cork city, Ireland in 1969. He studied fine art at Sligo RTC from 1987 to 1991. Since then he has exhibited his work widely in Ireland, the UK and America.

“As an artist I return to places over time, picking up the threads of a visual story. Scenes change but are also restored, reafirmed. Places are always renewing themselves- a shelf of rock by a thundering sea, beaches in a winter light, fields overshadowed by mountains, forests in seasonal flux.

The Fresh Snowfall – James McKeown

Born in London 1961 of Irish origin, James MacKeown spent most of his childhood in the British Isles. In 1988, he moved to Normandy, France where he currently lives and works.

“I have often reflected on the difficulties of writing about painting, or about art, or indeed about anything. I find it so much easier and agreeable to disappear into my studio with a brush in hand and avoid all conversation about my work. While I may spend time contemplating what I do, or what I don’t do, the very idea of having to describe and analyse the results without the aid of my paint brush leaves me in a cold sweat……”
