Biography Padraic Woods
Born in Newry, Co. Down, Woods studied art part-time over the course of ten years at the Belfast School of Art whilst earning his living as a teacher. In 1931 he was elected an Associate of the RUA and he spent the next two years painting on Achill Island. Five of these Achill works were exhibited at the RHA between 1932 and 1933. In 1948 he became President of the Ulster Arts Club, where he was a regular exhibitor, and in 1964 he was appointed a governor of the Belfast College of Art. He was a friend and great admirer of James Humbert Craig and co-exhibited with William Conor (q.q.v.). Woods' work attracted favorable reviews in his own life-time, and he was given the honor of a retrospective exhibition at the Linen Hall Library in Belfast
