First for Moville as new art gallery opens 07.06.24

AWARD-winning artist Rikki Louise van den Berg will officially open her new art gallery in Moville town square on Saturday afternoon 8th June. It will be the town's first art gallery and van den Berg says the opening is also timed to mark ‘I Love Inishowen Day.’

The official opening of the Glen Art Studio and Gallery runs from 2pm to 6pm, this Saturday at Bonner’s Corner on the square, and all are welcome, says Rikki. She describes her art as “a deeply personal response to the stunning landscapes and seascapes of Inishowen.” She wants to share her interpretation of her beloved Inishowen with the local community.

“I am passionate about bringing the arts closer to the community and making it more accessible. So, in addition to displaying my work, I will also be running arts classes from the gallery, for all levels of ability.”
The gallery is in a great central location so it’s easy to find, and people can just stroll in for a coffee and a chat, says Rikki. The gallery will offer a range of small and large paintings, as well as handmade greeting cards and jewellery.

Originally from Holland, van den Berg spent her formative years in Ireland. In 1997, she returned to Ireland establishing herself as a figurative and abstract painter. Her work has received both national and international acclaim.

If you want to attend the official opening of Glen Art Studio and Gallery, just come along at 5pm on Saturday 8th June, says Rikki. To find out more about Rikki and her work or to book classes, go to her Instagram account on @rikki_louise_art or email her on info@rikkivandenberg.com .
