Short Film: Tory Island School of Folk Painters


Derek Hill lived in Donegal from the mid 1950s until his death in 2000. His greatest contribution to Irish art was his relationship with the Tory Island painters. He encouraged his friends on Tory to become artists and championed their unique work. 

This film explores the early history of Tory Island Folk art, beginning with Derek’s first visits to the island and James Dixon, and looks at the incredible legacy the Tory artists continue to create. Many of the artworks explored in this film are currently on exhibition in the Glebe Gallery, open daily from 11am – 6.30pm until November.
