ÉADAÍN – Exitus, The Odyssey of a Hare  |  from February 9

 

‘Exitus’ is a collection of paintings in which the artist continues a fascinating long term project tracing the journey of an emblematic hare.

 

The imagery is profuse with symbolism, but while the viewer may revel in these visual clues, the work is remarkably open - each piece standing as an attractive element in its own right. Rich figurative oils and very fine works in mixed media reveal an artist at the height of her powers.

Running for four weeks in Kenny’s Liosbán Gallery in Galway City, the exhibition will be officially opened by Dr Felix O Murchadha of the Dept of Philosophy, NUI Galway, at 2.30 on Saturday 9th February.

 

The exhibition continues daily, Monday to Saturday, 9.00-17.00 until the 7th March - admission is free, all are welcome, and the paintings are available for sale.

JOSEPH QUILTY - Experimental Burren  |  from March 8, 4 weeks

 

Joseph Quilty was a Limerick man who had a business in London for many years. He was a good friend of Gerard Dillon’s, and often painted with him.

 

Dillon was a major influence on him. He retired to live on the edge of the Burren and he began to record life the life and landscape around him. He had three successful exhibitions in the Kenny Gallery. The works in this current show are all from his studio.

 



JIM McKEE – The Dance of the Cherry Trees  |  from April 6, 4 weeks

 

Artist Jim Mc Kee, makes a welcome return to the Kenny Gallery after a break of a decade, with a solo show entitled and celebrating ‘The Dance of the Cherry Tree’.

The exhibition will be officially opened by musician John Spillane, who may well sing his own ‘Dance of the Cherry Tree’!
