Michael McCarthy exhibits in Purcell Gallery

Work by talented landscape artist Michael McCarthy will go on exhibit at the Purcell Gallery on July 3rd until the end of August.
Michael McCarthy, born in Mallow in 1940, has been drawing and painting as long as he can remember. In 1966 Michael immigrated to Australia where he meet and became friends with the renowned Australian artist Leonard Long, travelling all over Australia painting the Landscape. McCarthy acknowledges the profound influence Long had on his work, ‘Painting outdoors, observing nature and light everyday was a wonderful apprenticeship.’ The soft pastoral works in this exhibition, show his love for South Kerry with its lakes and hills and animals grazing in bright summer fields
