David Burke Exhibition
Armagh Visitor Information Centre
40 English Street
Please call into the Armagh Visitor Information Centre and enjoy the latest art exhibition by Armagh based artist David Burke. Born in Dublin in 1972, David has always had a passion for art, whether that be music or drawing and that passion has over the years, taken him in different directions.
After leaving college, participating in a chance music session, lead David to become a professional musician and he played and toured for the next ten years! However, even during this time, he still found time to draw and had pieces of his work shown in Dublin, mainly in colleges and he undertook some private commissions as well.
Like many before him having started a family, David had less and less time to give to his art and in effect, he stopped drawing for many years while pursuing a career.
Ironically, it was while on a career break taken because of an injury sustained at work that David once again started to draw to help him relax. The resulting paintings from this period form this body of this work, his first fully professional exhibition.
The exhibition will run throughout the month on August. The Visitor Information Centre will be open from Monday to Saturday 9am – 5:30pm and on Sunday from 1pm – 5:30pm.
