‘X’, an exhibition featuring ten aspiring artists from the Professional Arts Practice course at Rossa College, takes place from February 15 to 22 at the Working Artists Studio in Skibbereen. This diverse group hails from a variety of backgrounds and nationalities but all are connected to West Cork. An exciting mix of disciplines will be on view including drawing, painting, ceramics, textiles and sculpture. This is an exclusive insight into individual concepts and diverse interpretations. ‘X’ presents a rare opportunity to view these emerging artists before their end of year show.

Isobel Baldwin explores the character and nature of the familiar. Fiona Coughlan uses abstraction as a way of inviting the subconscious. Jill Dinsdale investigates the sense of movement in inanimate objects. Connie McKenna is concerned with capturing a sense of structure within things that live and once lived. Patricia Moynihan reflects her personal philosophy that “everything changes but something remains”. Dónal O’Brien demonstrates the different elements, shapes, textures and depth in recognisable GAA iconography. Julia Penney  searches the way nature infiltrates and reclaims discarded formations and possessions. Maddi Precious’ use of natural materials reminds us of the elemental states from which they are derived. Savannah Rozema’s work examines the play of light and the soothing sense of peace, calm and nostalgia that shadow and illumination invoke. Mary Scroope celebrates plants and flowers by bringing the organic qualities to life.

The Working Artists Studios is located on North Street in Skibbereen. Gallery hours are 10:30am – 5:30pm daily (closed Sunday). The official opening takes place on Friday February 14 with a special guest speaker and all are welcome.
