Belfast's main art galleries always put on a summer show to display new talent and attract buyers.

This year, the Mullan Gallery had a strong field, including a number of oil paintings and sculptures by Breon O'Casey, son of playwright Sean and a noted artist.

His work is abstract, Rothkoesque and collectable.

Gallery owner Caroline Mullan says: “This year we had a mixed show with canvases and an amount of bronze sculpture.

“As well as O'Casey's work, we're showing new artists such as Colin Martin from Dublin and Ann Quinn from Donegal, who was joint winner of the Hennessy prize at the RHA this year.”

The show continues at the Mullan Gallery, 239 Lisburn Road, Belfast until September 12.
