Bold colour, strong shapes and expressive textures are all evident in the latest work by renowned artist Adrian Margey.

The Kilrea-based man, known for his contemporary depictions of our landscape, landmarks and musical traditions, is back on the exhibition trail.

An exhibition ran at the Killyhevlin Hotel, Enniskillen, over the Easter weekend and his annual one-man show at the Ramada Hotel, Main Street, Portrush, takes place next month over the May bank holiday weekend.

Vivid interpretations of Monea Castle, Devenish and Boa Island, Enniskillen Castle, Florence Court, Portora and Lough Erne took centre stage at Killyhevlin, while striking depictions of such north coast gems as Dunluce Castle, Ballintoy Harbour, Whiterocks Beach and Portballintrae will dominate the Portrush show next month.

Adrian (below) said: "I am delighted to be returning to Portrush in a couple of weeks with my spring exhibition.

"Through my work, I try to bring a new perspective to the familiar and I look forward to seeing visitors' reactions to these new collections."

Adrian's career is going from strength to strength.

Last year the Arts Council of Northern Ireland supported the promotion of his work in the USA to great effect and backed his debut Dublin exhibition.

His artwork can be viewed at his Kilrea studio between public exhibitions. Viewings are by appointment.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Scorpio:

Don't deny yourself pleasure. It's important to indulge your sensual side. When you don't, you become irritable. Take this opportunity to splash out on new clothes. Soak in a scented bath. Get a massage. Enjoy a long nap. Do whatever your heart desires. If anyone dares complain you aren't working hard enough, maintain a stony silence. You're incredibly intimidating, especially when you're quiet. Anyone who has become too reliant on you needs to be more self sufficient.More
