This year’s vintage fair is themed around the 1916 Easter Rising Centenary. The unrivaled family event promises art & culture, music & song and no shortage of food & drink. And Rod’s canvases have pride of place in Ireland’s oldest operational church from 7 – 9pm on Saturday 20th and 2 – 6pm on Sunday 21st August 2016.

Rod Coyne has created an exclusive series of portraits remembering key faces of the 1916 Easter Rising. The artist blends contemporary and classical painting to draw together the vastly diverse photographic sources. The unity of style he achieves underlines the diverse nature of the Risings’ protagonists and how they bound together in common purpose. This collection of portraits, currently available as 1916 Centenary Calendar and canvas prints, will be exhibited in the St. Kevin’s Church, Hollywood, County Wicklow, Ireland.

 

 

Hollywood, Co Wicklow and Hollywood, California

Foreign tourists who stumble on Hollywood in the course of their travels can often be seen posing for photographs in front of Guirkes’ old shop.  The prominent sign on the facade Oifig an Phoist – Hollywood Post Office is clearly what draws them.  Intrigued that such a small village can boast such a legendary name they feel the need to capture the moment on camera.  If they take the time to make further inquiries the same tourists are even more astonished when they discover that this small village in west Wicklow is actually the original Hollywood and that from it came the California Hollywood, home of the movie industry.
