Review by Neil Collins, editor of Visual Arts Cork, June 2008

"As you can see, I adore McGarry Kellys art. It has soul as well as power, and her iconography is particularly striking. Her feeling for colour and tone is truly special. Make no mistake, this girl is good."

Facing White

The Exhibition Facing White at the Backstage Theatre of Arts Longford was very well received. A strong attendance on the opening night delivered a great atmosphere and a very enjoyable night for all.  The success of this show allows me now to continue to paint with the freedom and ambition that I have enjoyed so far. I look forward to participating in several group shows during the summer.  My warmest thanks to all who supported the show.

ZMG Giclée Print

Due to the popularity of specific paintings in my last exhibition, I have decided to offer a limited edition Giclée print of certain works. A “Giclée” print is an exact reproduction of a printed artwork or photograph produced using high quality archival pigment inks on archival papers, and is a way that artists can produce art, and collectors can display or own high quality art.
The visual quality of the print result is extremely high with seeming continuous tone prints without dots, lines or barring. The colour saturation and definition can be stunning.

Each print is signed and numbered. Use the Contact me on the menu for pricing and availability queries.

Cover Artwork

My painting entitled “The Entrance” was selected as the book cover for a collected works in aid of Nas Na Riogh Housing Association.

“Who brought the biscuits?” is a compilation of short stories, poetry, extracts and memoirs, written by members of the Naas Harbour Writers. It is an illustration of their varied styles, techniques and approaches to writing, as individuals and as a group - I was delighted to contribute.
