Les Donaghy returned to the easel a little over four years ago, and quickly established himself on the contemporary art scene. Although probably best known as a portrait painter, Les has used this time to develop the skills required to paint almost any subject matter, and this exhibition tries to show just that.
The title comes from the fact that Les has been branded as an "ultra-realist" or, as one viewer said, "it's like looking at a picture in HD".
The exhibition itself is in two parts. Some drawings and 'lower-priced' works will be presented in the Arts Cafe, while larger works may be seen in the Arts Centre's Gallery. Work ranges from eight inches square to a little over a metre, and there is little doubt there is something for everyone to enjoy here.

Russian National Ballet Presents Swan Lake
The greatest of all romantic ballets
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky
After the sold-out performances of Nutcracker last year, Russian National Ballet is back to the UK with the most famous Ballet of all time. Swan Lake is one of Tchaikovsky best works featuring some of ballet’s most memorable music and breath-taking dance.
Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odilie, who resembles each other so closely one can easily be mistaken for the other.
It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated – will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?
Swan Lake is full of mystery and romance and has captured the imagination of timeless generations over the years, and continues to attract worldwide audiences, young and old.
A wonderful evening out from which you will cherish memories for a long time.
