Jack Reilly came to Los Angeles in 1978, shortly after receiving his MFA from Florida State University. In 1979, the Molly Barnes Gallery in Los Angeles debuted Reilly’s paintings in a solo exhibition. That same year, USC Fisher Gallery’s curator Donald Brewer included his work in a major museum exhibition entitled “The Reality of Illusion,” an international survey that opened at the Denver Art Museum and traveled to museums throughout the United States for the following two years. By the early 1980s, Reilly’s work was regularly exhibited in museums and represented by numerous galleries throughout the country; including Arron Berman Gallery in New York City, Foster Goldstrom Fine Arts in San Francisco, Molly Barnes Gallery in Los Angeles, Marilyn Butler Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ and numerous others. Reviews, articles and reproductions featuring Reilly’s work are published in Arts Magazine, Artweek, the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Magazine and in books including American Art NowInside the L.A. Artist, and Introduction to Design. Reilly is a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts grant and numerous awards. His paintings are included in major public, private and corporate collections internationally, including the Steve Martin Collection, Frederick Weisman Foundation, County of San Diego’s Public Arts Program, and American Airlines at Los Angeles International Airport.
