The Culloden Estate & Spa in Belfast is opening a short exhibition this summer, Art in the Garden, which will feature some of the best-known names including Dali, Picasso, Warhol, and Banksy. This will be the largest collection of Dali’s work ever seen in Ireland.
Working with Gormleys Fine Art, experts in international and contemporary Irish art, to curate this fabulous exhibition, Culloden Hotel will exhibit fourteen pieces from the Dali Universe in Switzerland, which will lead the show. In addition Art in the Garden will include over 120 sculptures, some of which are valued up to £500,000.
Within the Culloden’s 12 acres, the beautiful gardens overlooking Belfast Lough make the ideal backdrop for the finest display of sculpture to be displayed in Ireland. There will also be rooms devoted to renowned artists including Andy Warhol, street artist Banksy and a Modern Masters Collection in the Ailsa Suite featuring Picasso, Miro and Lucien Freud. Other artists featured will include Damien Hirst, Robert Indiana, Grayson Perry, Tom Wesselmann, Keith Haring, Julian Opie and Irish artists such as Peter Monaghan, Stephen Johnston, Ian Pollock, Patrick O’Reilly, Stephen Forbes, Kenneth Webb, and Orla De Brí.
Guests can enjoy special Art in the Garden breaks which includes luxurious overnight accommodation, full Irish breakfast and entry into the exhibition from £230 per room. From £320, an “Art in the Garden” rate additionally includes Afternoon Tea for 2 people. There will also be an Art in the Garden Afternoon Tea available with a curated art tour of the exhibits, available for £50 per person.
Art in the Garden will run from 15 – 30 June, with guided “Art in the Garden” tours daily at 2pm, 4pm and 6pm.
