Urgent PR Undercurrent opens on Thursday

Water and what lurks beneath is the subject matter for UNDERCURRENT an exhibition of art by Westport artist Karen O'Reilly.   The exhibition opens this Thursday October 2nd at 6pm in Westport library.  The exhibition will be opened by journalist Liamy MacNally.


Of her work Karen explains that "living in a coastal town with the Carrowbeg river running through it and  being surrounded by waters of Clew Bay led me to explore  waters marine life and flora through my use of materials and processes. Initially my considerations of compositional elements are a motivational factor which may become obscured at a later stage as the piece becomes less representational as layer after layer the work is engulfed by creative freedom. Texture, tone and colour are the key to the final outcome of my work."


Karen O Reilly qualified with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art & Design at GMIT in 2006.  This is her first solo exhibition after exhibiting twice in group shows, first her graduation exhibition and secondly an exhibition hosted by Castlebar hospital entitled 'Turas' in 2006.


UNDERCURRENT is being exhibited as part of the 2008 Westport Arts Festival and will run at Westport library until Saturday October 11th.
