The Croí Art Exhibition takes place at Working Artists Studio, 71 North Street, Skibbereen from February 14-22, Monsay to Saturday, 11am-5pm with a Preview on Friday February 13 from 6pm-8pm.

Curatored by Aisling Roche, Paula Marten and Pim Wijnmaalen this Exhibition is a consolidation of the variety of backgrounds of seven students from five different countries and two continents. Together they study “Professional Arts Practice, FETAC Level 6” at Rossa College, Skibbereen.

Their work demonstrates the different approaches and developments through painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture and mixed media. The aim is to invite the viewer to access sources of inspiration and creativity and to contemplate this journey.

Amal Aly Eldin is looking at the exchange of ideas in the context of culture. She explores repetition and pattern making, in a range of materials.

Neisha Azzopardi is interested in both the conscious and subconscious. She creates connections and explores the fragility, strength, and the contradictions that lie therin.

Tina Dempsey is concerned with ruggedness and the intensity of light, creating pieces that stimulate the senses.

Lucy Dodd focuses on the texture and form of seaweed; it’s translucency, transformation and intensity of colour.

Dan Gray enjoys landscape and nature.

Eiblín O’Siocháin is inspired by organic forms. She endeavours to capture nature, using a pre-selected palette.

Rosmarie Isenschmid is exploring layering. She likes to encourage the viewer to look behind the surface and discover what may lie beneath.

The show promises to be intriguing and appealing, mirroring the personalities and traditional influences, the progression and evolution of the student body of work.
