UNFOLD is an exhibition featuring work by 6 artists; Johnny Bugler, Roselyn Cleary, Simon English, Dominic Fee, Rob Monaghan and Sarah O’ Brien.
UNFOLD is a Cork County Council Arts Office project presented by Cork Printmakers in association with West Cork Arts Centre. Through an Open Submission Call, six artists were selected to participate in UNFOLD; three professional Cork based artists and three artist members of Cork Printmakers. The County Cork based artists are; Simon English, Rob Monaghan and Sarah O’ Brien. The artist members of Cork Printmakers are Johnny Bugler, Roselyn Cleary & Dominic Fee.
The six artists worked together over a two week residency from 27th July to the 7th August at Cork Printmakers’ Studio, Cork City. UNFOLD is about professional artists discovering – or rediscovering, printmaking as a medium full of possibility. This project offered the artists a unique opportunity to collaborate, learn new skills and explore techniques in a professional Print Studio.

A solo exhibition by Joanna Kamniska, originally from Poland and now based in Cork. This exhibition features 45 paintings both new and previous works.
“My work is a continuous spiritual journey that has, up to now, brought me from Poland through New York to Ireland. My style is naive, authentic and this, together with my individual view of the world, influences my art. My illustrations are often daily scenes, conversations overheard or situations seen. Anything could be a starting point for an illustration: somebody’s facial expression, a title in the newspaper, a gesture or a particular song.”
