SERIES: II” from 29th November – 31st December 2013.
An exhibition of work in Bangor at Dr Sarah McAleer’s studio.
‘SERIES: II’ explores interpretations of the word ‘series’ and focuses on the succession of objects and ideas. It conveys how a jeweller can produce variations on a theme whereby a form/idea develops from the first piece to the last, or is included in different jewellery types. All jewellery is hand-made by local jewellers.
A Culture of Making: Evolution and Growth
In celebration of the August Craft Month ’13 theme, Tyrone Design Guild has brought together both established and emerging artists and designer/makers from Co. Tyrone to demonstrate how the county’s rich heritage of artisans and traditional craftspeople have evolved into contemporary artists for the 21st century.
This exhibition, aims to challenge perceptions about current rural Irish art, craft and design, how traditional practices merge with the contemporary, and how the contemporary sits perfectly in a county steeped in tradition.
