TIMPEALLACHT – Surroundings, environment

2nd–31st Aug, Tue–Fri, 10–5.30pm Sat–Sun, 11–5.30pm

This is an exhibition of exploration and discovery. Many artists and crafts people are looking more and more to work with their local environment and learn from old ways of using local materials to create both beautiful and practical things. Artists from all parts of the country have submitted work for this timely exhibition that deals with our need to look to what we have in our local environment.

Approximately 20 different artists have taken part, and all have their own story to tell.

Various plant materials give us fibrous weaving materials and many artists have used these in their work. The colour from plants was not that long ago used to dye our clothes and exhibitors here have re looked at these in imaginative ways. Minerals from the earth have been used to glaze and create pottery, and wood from our too few but beautiful native trees gives crafts people endless creative uses.

The exhibition is curated by Anna Crudge and Sonia

Caldwell and supported by the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and Kilcoe Studios.
