REVIEW BY LIMERICKARTSOCIETY.IE

"Ann has been able to transform her natural painting talent into a successful career. After many years of painting rural Ireland and exporting her paintings all over the USA and Europe she now has changed direction to the 'old masters'. This is a challenge which required a huge amount of concentration, discipline and energy to achieve a final outcome worthy of the 'great masters' e.g Jules Breton, Johannes Vermeer, Gustave Courbet and Thomas Gainsborough."

REVIEW BY THE LIMERICK LEADER NEWSPAPER

"Ann’s Hidden Art Gems"
 
"The bank holiday afternoon of October 25th saw the launch of the Art-is-Ann Cottage Gallery on the banks of the Camogue River.
 
During both lockdowns artist Ann Gaule spent the time painting away in her studio and the result is a treasure trove of art work which include Ann’s own original paintings and her interpretations of the ‘Old Masters’. 

The gallery was officially opened by David O’Brien, CEO of Limerick Georgian Civic Trust. A lovely afternoon, a very positive experience and a memorable event and was enjoyed by all those present."

AWARD


Ann won an award for a winter cottage scene, a colour painting based on a black and white photograph taken by Mr. Grimes, of Limerick District and Photographic Society.
