Welcoming New Artist

– Hugh Thompson –

to The Greenlane Gallery Dingle


Prolific visual artist and musician Hugh Thompson was born in Armagh, Ireland, and immigrated to Canada in 1974. Thompson studied Fine Art privately under Amanda Traversari in Belfast and has been painting for over 35 years. He paints the land and sky in Ireland, Canada, America, and Europe, enjoying the Great Salon style of exhibition. Combining classical and impressionist styles, Hugh sketches watercolours in the field and larger works are done using oils in the studio.

Thompson is a member of the Arts and Letters Club in Toronto as well as the Royal Dublin Society in Ireland. As an adjunct Professor at the University of Waterloo, Hugh teaches drawing classes to architecture students. He is the President of Cambridge Towel; a premiere design and colour home furnishings company operating in Canada and across the world. Now a resident of Cambridge, Ontario, Hugh owns Landreth Gallery and Art Consulting as well as the Thompson Centre for Art and Design, which he operates along with Deirdre and Jason Thompson.
