Julia O’Malley-Keyes

In 1969 Ms. Julia O’Malley-Keyes landed on Cape Cod. A “Wash Ashore” is what they call those of us who aren’t born on “The Cape”. She opened her first Cape Cod art gallery at the age of 22 in Provincetown MA which she owned for 10 years. In her spare time, she was also a studio model and eventually studied with Henry Hensche, an internationally recognized impressionist painter, and color theorist.

After time spent on travel, study and showing her paintings in numerous fine art galleries, Ms. O’Malley-Keyes settled in Falmouth on Cape Cod and in 1996 opened another award-winning Cape Cod art gallery, Day Hill Fine Art. In 2012, she made the decision to close her gallery to devote all of her time to painting, artistic study and travelling. In 2013 after missing face to face contact with her clients and friends, she decided to open another art gallery in Falmouth on Cape Cod. Best known for her highly detailed classic sailing yachts, Ms. O’Malley-Keyes is also deeply attached to figurative painting, in particular dance, and also enjoys painting the stunning landscape around her home on Cape Cod.

O’Malley-Keyes Fine Art is the third Cape Cod art gallery owned by artist Julia O’Malley-Keyes. She is known for her dedication to charities, and that history continues with her newest art gallery through the donation of 10% of her business net income and yearly donations of original oil paintings for auctions in support of numerous national and local areas of need including JDF, Figawi Charities, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, A Baby Center, Mystic Seaport Museum and many more.
