Art in Cork: July and August round-up

After a few weeks away exploring art in Italy, I am back to bring you the latest from creatives in Cork.

Here is a roundup of the exhibitions that opened over the past few weeks around the city:

CorkCraftPic1_largeCork Craft Month showcases work from established and emerging makers in exhibitions throughout the county.  The James O’Neill Building in Kinsale hosts Time exhibition, the jewel in the crown of Cork Craft Month. Curator Fergal O’Leary of Horizon Furniture has selected the work of 23 craft artists who will be showing over 80 individual pieces including jewellery, lacework, ceramics, furniture, woodturning, paperwork, metalwork and more. Among the craft workers exhibiting are Luke Sisk, Sara Roberts and Christina Jasmin Roser.

Featuring 22 makers from all over county Cork, the exhibition includes a variety of works from functional through to decorative and sculptural. The exhibition runs until August 29th.

Celebrating the young artistic talent around the country the Texaco Children’s Art Competition Exhibition is on display at Cork Vision Centre until August 27th.

BooleanExpressions2The much anticipated Boolean Expressions opened at the Lewis Glucksman Gallery on July 25th, curated by Fiona Kearney the exhibition explores the ways in which artists use mathematical ideas and systems in their work.

It demonstrates the creative synergies between scientific and artistic thinking and invite audiences to explore mathematical concepts, the impact of big data on contemporary life, the ways in which systems and codes support creative production, and how artists have used logic and technology for their own artistic purposes.

The exhibition runs until November 8th, so plenty of time to catch up with this one.
