Myra Jago’s solo exhibition Now Islands ran at The RHA Ashford Gallery Dublin Sept-Oct 2019. Her self portrait won a Highly Commended Award in The 2017 Hennessy Portrait Prize, The National Gallery of Ireland. A six month residency at The Royal Hibernian Academy School (2015) strengthened her practice and she has been fortunate to have her work featured since 2014 and again in this year's 190th RHA Annual Exhibition. Jago achieved her MFA in Fine Art Painting at NCAD in 2011 following her BA (Hons) in 2009.
Her paintings have exhibited internationally in Chicago, New York, Brussels, Tokyo, Hong Kong and The UK. On the island of Ireland, her work has shown at The National Gallery of Ireland, The Royal Hibernian Academy, The Hugh Lane Gallery, The Central Bank of Ireland, Áras Inis Gluaire, The Honourable Society of King's Inns' Law Library, NUI Maynooth, The Royal Ulster Academy, The Ulster Hall, a Billboard in East Belfast and The Séamus Ennis Gallery.
Jago's work is represented in The Deloitte Collection, The State Art Collection, The Central Bank Collection, Green 8 Express Japan, Kildare County Council, Hotel Bloom Brussels along with those held privately both nationally and internationally.
