Irish painter William McKeown studied at Central St Martins School of Art and Design, London, Glasgow School of Art, and the University of Ulster, Belfast. McKeown’s luminous, near abstract paintings explore states of mind, such as happiness and freedom, and qualities of nature, like light, air and sky. McKeown has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions at the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin; Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast, and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. A major solo exhibition of his paintings and drawing was held at IMMA in 2008.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, IMMA’s galleries will be closed from the evening of Friday 18 September until Saturday 10 October 2020. The grounds of IMMA and the RHK will remain open. Thank you for your cooperation.
