Clare Arts Office in conjunction with Scarriff Library Gallery is delighted to present “Release” a wonderful exhibition by Kilkee artist Julie O’Gorman.

Julie is a self-taught artist who has always been greatly moved by the ocean. She had an interest in art from a young age and has recently begun to explore this again using an array of mediums including acrylics, plaster, resin and even items beachcombed from Clare’s beautiful coastline.

Julie takes her inspiration from everywhere, but there are recurring themes of the strength of the sea and the strength of women in her work.

“‘Release” has a lot of significance for her. Release from the physical restrictions for all of us over the past couple of years, the release Julie feels when in or near the ocean, the release of her creativity again it’s all encompassing”.

This free exhibition runs from 28th June to 22nd July, 2022 and everyone is welcome!
