2 - 24 October 2015
Thursday 1st October @ 6.30pm - opening reception speaker: Dr Julian Campbell, Art Historian
Thurloe Conolly's paintings are not narratives, and not representational in the commonly understood sense of the word; but through the signs and the materials that the artist uses so fluidly and confidently, they weave an allusive and magical web that works on our sensibilities and emotions.
This exhibition is being held to coincide with the opening of The Language of Dreams at Crawford Art Gallery in Cork, also previewing on 1 October, which includes his early work from the 1940s.
The View in Here: New Drawings
Exhibition by Jessica Dessner
18th - 26th September
On Thursday 17th Septembr at 4pm, In Conversation: Jessica Dessner with Trish Brennan, Head of the Department of Fine Art and Applied Art, CIT CCAD, followed by the opening reception at 5pm
Jessica Dessner’s new series of drawings are explorations of landscapes and windows as frames for inadvertent still lifes. She works from original photographs taken with an old Olympus analogue camera that allows light bleeds amongst other mechanical uncertainties. Dessner’s hyper realistic drawings are poetic observations on how objects are assembled on the thresholds of domestic life, reimagining the deeper narratives behind such thresholds.
To all intents, construction and purposes
Exhibition by Luke Sisk and Bren Smyth
4th - 12th September
Through ceramics, drawing and mixed media, this work explores the evolution of familiar areas of Cork city and how their transition might reflect that of the modern phrase ‘For all intents and purposes’. Drawing comparisons with the evolution of this phrase from legal terminology into common language.
