Roger Cummiskey
Three paintings accepted for exhibition at the Boyle Arts Festival 2003, Boyle Co Roscommon.

The show is located in King House, Boyle, Co Roscommon and will be on display from Friday, July 25th to Friday, August 1st.

Roger was born in Dublin in 1944 and attended Blackrock College in Dublin and Rockwell College in Tipperary before being awarded a Bachelor of Commerce degree at University College, Dublin.

He studied painting and drawing at Newpark College, Dublin and attended the CEER classes at the National College for Art and Design over two years, and the DLCAD, Dunlaoghaire. He attended extramural classes in art at UCD and also studied privately with professional painters.

Roger, after taking early retirement, has become a full time professional painter. He is primarily a water-colourist who specialises in particular themes. His paintings are in private collections in the USA, UK, Australia, Spain, South Africa, Japan and Ireland.

His latest achievement, about which he is really, really proud is that one of his paintings has been chosen to represent Ireland in a 51 country, world-wide Millennium Art Exhibition, sponsored by Winsor and Newton. This exhibition will be the largest ever staged in the world. It will hang in London at the Mall Gallery in February 2000, The World Trade Centre in Stockholm during March and then on to finish its tour at the United Nations in New York in June - August 2000.

The Exhibition will feature in the next Guinness Book of Records.
