Omagh born artist, Jaime McGlinn, to show new exhibition in Strule Arts Centre 

17th May 2022

Jaime McGlinn

Strule Arts Centre is delighted to present Manchester based Omagh artist, Jaime McGlinn’s latest exhibition ‘Memory Fields’ which opens in the Gallery on Friday 20 May 2022.

Jaime graduated from University of Ulster (now Ulster University) with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art but his career took him to the construction sector. After a long hiatus, Jaime returned to art at the start of lockdown and his passion for painting has been reinvigorated. While oil painting is his principal medium, Jaime also enjoys sketching and photography.

Jaime’s work has been inspired by his eclectic musical tastes. From an Omagh family, steeped in both music and visual art, his exhibition features a colourful display of abstract landscapes which combine both artforms which have influenced and moulded him. Guests at the launch will also be entertained by live music performances by the cream of local musicians including Matt McGlinn, Ciara Fox, Jerome McGlynn and Mark “Boneyard” McCausland.

The exhibition itself is interactive and guests are invited to bring along their headphones so they can scan in the QR code on their phone for each painting and listen to the tracks which inspired each piece of artwork.

Jaime’s work hangs in the homes of many of the DJ’s whose music has served as his inspiration. He has also exhibited widely in Europe, with his worked displayed at the Saatchi Gallery in London and in galleries in France, Italy and Spain

Learn mor​e about Jaime’s inspiration and process at 2pm on Friday 20 May when he’ll offer a Gallery tour of his work and answer questions.

Both events are free but booking is encouraged. To book either event, please visit the Strule Arts Centre website at www.struleartscentre.co.uk.
