Clare Arts Office in conjunction with Cultúrlann Sweeney Library Gallery is delighted to present “Fleeting Moments” an exhibition of art by Myra O’Reilly.

Between studying and teaching art, working in various galleries and studios, and eventually becoming a full-time painter, O’Reilly has kept her hand and her heart in the creative process for the past 35 years.

A native of Limerick, Myra studied Fine Art Painting in LSAD and graduated from there as a mature student in 1994.

Over the next 30 years, she worked and/or taught in studios and galleries while painting part-time having numerous one-man and group shows along the way.

O’Reilly’s work is mainly figurative in her own distinctive narrative style, oils being her preferred medium.

Drawing from old family photos, this exhibition ‘Fleeting Moments’ revisits the female figure through black and whites taken on holidays in Clare. She has found this journey to be quite emotive at times, not only bringing home to her the beauty of life fully lived but also the impermanence of it all.

This free exhibition will run from the 20th March to 19th April, 2024 inclusive and everyone is welcome!
