Michael McCarthy

The Purcell Gallery will be holding an exhibition of the works of Michael McCarthy, entitled Summer Reflections, opening in early July, when his paintings will be on view in the first floor gallery.

Born in Mallow in Co. Cork in 1940, Michael McCarthy moved to Northern Ireland with his family as a child and later to England where he attended Newark College of Art. Internationally inspired, he spent many years as an adult living in Australia (where he met, worked and traveled with Australian artist Leonard Long) and became, in 1992, an “Artist in Residence” with the U.S Forest Service for which he spent a year in the Sierra Nevada mountains. He returned to Ireland in 1997 where he now lives in the midlands. His sweeps of mountain, water and trees give fitting tribute to the landscape of Co. Kerry of which he has painted many scenes from grazing livestock to mirror lakes and tumbling rivers. He has held more than forty major exhibitions and is in many pubic and private collections worldwide.
