“Painting is a Treasure” is the title of the upcoming solo exhibition by Carmel Daly.  Her motto and philosophy is, “…painting is a treasure and a pleasure,” and is the one she has lived by.

Carmel Daly is a visual artist, born in Galway and living locally. Her work is mainly representative of everyday life, of which she paints in vibrant colours. Her paintings are inspired by the beauty of the Burren, from observing rural pastures and pastimes, and people at their work and leisure.

Carmel is a former librarian with Clare Co. Libraries.  She has facilitated access and provision for arts and creativity. Carmel helped to implement library policy to support community and cultural organisations, as well as promoting cultural events in Ennis and Shannon Libraries. Believing in access and provision of information, education and recreation, Carmel encouraged arts and craft exhibitions and thus contributed to many cultural and community forms of expression.

Carmel sees painting as, “One form of expression, a cultural cousin so to speak.”

When time came to make a career change, Carmel returned to formal education to study Fine Art and painting in the Centre for Creative Arts and Media in Galway, now ATU, where she graduated in Art and Design.

Now, Carmel enjoys the process of painting. “I love mixing, experimenting, creating new colour, tones, shades, shapes and shadows in harmonious and complimentary colours.”

For her artwork preparation, she sketches, photographs, and paints en pleinair. Carmel likes to observe our changing western skies, sunsets, and evening shadows, often finishing work later in oil or watercolour.

The exhibition runs Friday 1st – 10th July next with an opening reception Friday 1st July at 7.00 pm in the Courthouse, Kinvara.
