Fleeting Moments: an art exhibition by Myra O’Reilly

19 March 2024

Clare Arts Office, in conjunction with Cultúrlann Sweeney library and gallery, Kilkee, is delighted to present ‘Fleeting Moments’, an exhibition of art by Myra O’Reilly.

Fleeting Moments Press Release March 2024

Between studying and teaching art, working in various galleries and studios, and eventually becoming a full-time painter, Myra 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 Limerick School of Art and Design 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.

Myra’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 20th March to 19th April, 2024 (inclusive), and everyone is welcome.
