The exhibition is curated by Senior Curator Chris Clarke and founding Director Fiona Kearney.
“Stitch in Time demonstrates how artists employ textiles and its associations of a popular, vernacular culture to shape and comment on contemporary life. Beginning with the groundbreaking work of Bauhaus artist, Anni Albers, the exhibition includes sensitive depictions of social and political issues as well as considered explorations of how fabrics can be deployed in new and imaginative ways.”
The Cillini of Achill Island and Currane, an exhibition of the works of René Böll, Graphic Artist and Photographer opens at The Atrium, Cork City Council, City Hall, Anglesea Street, Cork. The exhibition is curated by Tina Darb.
Cork Civic Trust presents Reminiscence by Leanne McDonagh at Cork Vision Centre, St Peters, North Main Street. Guest speaker Broadcaster and Publisher Norah Casey will officially open the exhibition.
Quintet a group exhibition of stone sculpture featuring Redmond Herrity, James Horan, Michael Quane, Martha Quinn and Blessing Sanyanga opens at 6pm in CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery. Guest Speaker is photographer Billy MacGill.
This exhibition brings a diverse group of Ireland’s sculptors together for the first time. This exhibition is unique in nature as there are no prints, editions and casts, no reproductions or ephemeral artworks; each piece is a unique sculpture. At first glance this is an eclectic mix of figurative and abstract/geometric sculpture, but on closer inspection each artist works to find a balance between the historical weight intrinsically attached to a traditional sculpture material and the creation of contemporary art works.
There is a walking tour of all four venues organised to celebrate the exciting night of art openings in Cork on Thursday April 2 Starting at Lewis Glucksman Gallery at 4:45, the tour ties in all of the four exhibition openings. From textiles to photography and sculpture, it promises to be a exciting night showing the diverse strength of creativity in Cork.
