Paintings By Deirdre Mccullough Grunwald

Poet and artist, Deirdre McCullogh Grunwald (1946-2018) painted every day of her life. In the early 1980s, she viewed The Book of Kells* in an exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. This visit created a turning point. For more than twenty years, Celtic patterns appeared in her paintings, inspired and influenced by her study and exploration of this masterwork that is widely regarded as Ireland’s finest national treasure.


The Celtic Knot Unraveled exhibit will feature 30 of Deirdre’s paintings based on her extensive study of these ancient patterns. Working in oil, tempera, collage, and acrylics, Deidre’s work is bold, colorful, and detailed. It’s abstract with a mystical essence. And, like Celtic mandalas, they are centered — each with a central point, contained inside an outer circle and extending to repeating patterns that create attractive designs.


This exhibit is organized by Arlene Hecht who represented Deirdre’s work for more than 20 years on Cape Cod.
