Geraldine O'Reilly



The painting 'Emigrants Letter and Envelope' from O'Reilly's first exhibition 'Journal' was selected by An Post for one of a series of 6 special issue stamps titled 'The Irish Abroad' . The series of stamps were launched in February 2020 and are on sale through the An Post website. 

O'Reilly has researched the history of past traditional musicians from Westmeath. The finished artwork will be exhibited during the week of the 'All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil 2022', to be held in Mullingar, Co Westmeath. The project is funded by Creative Ireland. 

'Unlegendary Heroes' is a collaborative project with Poet Mary O'Donnell. The project is a limited edition box set of silk screen prints featuring 10 poems by the poet to which O'Reilly responded with 10 illustrations in watercolour which were then printed with the poems using silk screen printing. The project  is presently being exhibited at the Market House, Monaghan Town  from the 9th November to the 3rd December 2021. It will be exhibited in 2022 with an exhibition at the library at Maynooth University. Other venues will be listed when dates are confirmed.

O'Reilly is exhibiting at the Museum of Biblical Art, Dallas, Texas in an exhibition titled 'Remembrance'. The exhibition was organised to commemorate those that died on 9/11 at the World Trade Centre on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attack. 

O'Reilly is exhibiting  'The way we went' at Ballinglen Art Museum, Ballycastle, Co Mayo. It opens on 5th November 2021. The exhibition is curated by Anne Mellee and it explores responses to the Mayo landscape.
