What's New in Kilkee



Coming to Cultúrlann Sweeney

Patricia Winders Reynolds Art Exhibition

Patricia Winders Reynolds will be hosting her art exhibition here in Cultúrlann Sweeney Kilkee from the 5th - 29th  May. Patricia is from Dublin and studied Art and Art History under Irish artists Declan Campbell and John Skelton in the 1970s, and oils and still life under the tutelage of artist Chad Hughes in North Carolina in the 1990s. Her love of ethnic art of the Celtic and Australian Aboriginal traditions have a huge influence in her paintings, from the strength of Celtic shapes and symbols to the boldness of colour from the Aboriginal tradition, these all come through in her beautiful paintings. The exhibition can be viewed in the Library foyer during Library opening hours.
