    STEPHEN MCKENNA – Pyrrhus from 2012, an oil on canvas.

    THE life and legacy of artist Stephen McKenna, who died in May, is celebrated in an exhibition at the Kerlin Gallery in Dublin.   London born he studied at The Slade in the 1960’s and settled in Carlow in the 1990’s.  He was one of the first artists exhibited at Kerlin on its founding in 1988 and he continued to show there for almost 30 years.

His work is represented in the collections of IMMA, the Tate, London, Berlinische Galeries, the Musees Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, Brussels and in many private and public collections.
