Charles McAuley

Born in the Glens of Antrim, 1910. He was renowned for his landscape and figurative work. He briefly attended the Belfast Technical College, but was essentially a self-taught artist.

James H. Craig encouraged the young McAuley after judging an art competition at a Feis in the Glens of Antrim during his formative years. McAuley better then any other artist, managed to capture the light in the Glens. His first one-man exhibition was at the Master’s Hand Gallery, Ballymena.

His works can be found in many private collections and in the Ulster Museum.

Charles McAuley died on 30th September 1999.
