TWO ARTISTS, both fascinated by the process of change in nature, will be exhibiting their latest works at The Kenny Gallery.
LushTide, an exhibition of new paintings by Jane Reeves and Mike Flannery, will be officially opened by author and journalist Olaf Tyaransen, this Saturday at 2pm at the gallery in the Liosbán Retail Park, Tuam Road.
Jane Reeves is from Derbyshire but has been living in Ireland since 2000. She produces large scale trompe l’oeil and paintings for both private and commercial clients, as well as interior designers.
She is interested in colour and texture and is inspired by the architectural, sculptural, and fragile beauty of flowers, along with the effects of light.
Mike Flannery was born in Galway in 1971. He worked in wood, metal, and stone before turning to oil paint. He is self taught and this leads him to sometimes take unorthodox approaches to painting. He uses bits of sponge, cocktail sticks, broken hair combs, brushes, and his fingers to capture changing atmospheric weather conditions in his work.
The exhibition continues Mondays to Saturdays from 9am to 5pm until July 8.
