IT was a family affair at the opening of a new exhibition of Robert Ballagh's works.
The artist was joined by his children Bruce and Rachel, as well his grandchildren Ethan and Eva.
The exhibition – 'Seven' – features seven self-portraits as well as seven of his portraits of leading cultural figures, both alive and dead.
Most of the work has been borrowed from private collections, so it has not been seen in public before.
The exhibition by the Dublin-born artist, who will be 70 later this month, is open at the Crawford Art Gallery, Cork.
