2013 Events

SERIES: II” from 29th November – 31st December 2013.

I have a range of work on display in Bangor with Dr Sarah McAleer as part of her winter exhibition.

‘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.

It brings together a selection of artists / designer-makers who showcase Co. Tyrone as a particularly vibrant cultural context for contemporary craft practice, including: Andrea Hayes, Carol Kinloch, Catherine Scott, Emma Kelly, Fionnuala O’Neill, Frances Sweeney, Kathleen Ward, Helen McFarland, John McIntyre, Leona Devine, Lotus de Wit, Niamh McAuley, Rachel Leary, Rosemary Ferguson, Shauna McCann, Teresa Poyntz, and Tom Agnew.

Venue: Strule Arts Centre, Townhall Square, Omagh, Co Tyrone, BT78 1BL

Dates: Exhibition Preview – Thurs, 8th Aug, 6pm. The exhibition continues from the 9th to the 31st of August. Opening Times: Mon-Sat, 10am to 5.30pm
