Irish Craft Heroes, a major exhibition celebrating 50 years of Irish craft, coincides with Design & Crafts Council Ireland's (DCCI) 50th Anniversary since its establishment in 1971. To mark this landmark occasion, the National Design & Craft Gallery  has produced an outdoor, touring exhibition and publication charting the evolution of the craft and design sector in Ireland over the last 50 years, paying homage to the many makers whose work has contributed to the rich tapestry of craft and design practice in Ireland.
 
Irish Craft Heroes exhibition will launch in Kilkenny from 23 July to 06 October 2021; touring to Dublin Castle from October to December 2021; and continuing to GMIT Centre for Creative Arts & Media, Galway city in spring 2022 – with further venues to be announced.

Through a public open call, Design & Crafts Council Ireland invited its members, GANS, partners, and the wider craft and design sector to nominate their #IrishCraftHero: ‘to celebrate makers whose work has significant legacy, has heralded new approaches or changed the way we look at the world.’

Róisín de Buitléar was selected as one of the 50 artists to be celebrated in this exhibition

MADE IN IRELAND

Ireland

'Made In Ireland celebrates the wealth and vibrancy of Ireland's studio crafts. The exhibition presents work by over 110 craftspeople each creating beautiful, considered objects using skills honed over many years.

Ireland’s makers, working in and across different sectors, are creating innovative work of high quality.

 

Makers work in local and carefully sourced materials, across all regions of our island. Some are household names, but most work away quietly perfecting their skill and promoting their work regionally. The Irish public has shown itself to have a lively interest in craft, however, is largely unaware of the diverse range and quality of work being produced in the country by skilled makers.

 

At a time when many are showing a considerable preference and appreciation for goods that are Irish made, we can think of no better time to create a colourful, inclusive exhibition that shows the very best of what is MADE IN IRELAND'. Design and Crafts Council Of Ireland

ISLANDERS 

WHEN DARKNESS FALLS

islanders_dub_col.png

ISLANDERS - When darkness falls, is a collaborative borderless artwork by Island artists that straddles giant continents and powers, and encompasses wider world thinking from a basis of small singular actions. A Live Event – Unique to place and culture

 

A light projection artwork particular to a location, creating a gathering of community, sharing culture, language, geography, craft, tradition, and innovation

 

 

ISLANDERS aims to create a worldwide community base of Island artists working with GLASS by giving global visibility to a heretofore, unmapped island community. Working from individual perspectives to make a collaborative project, ISLANDERS maps how without borders or prejudice, positive gestures can result in supporting each other. The project invites discussion around how living on an island can inspire and influence artwork, business and community. Through this it examines how independence and dependence, affects communities to drive change, create identities and build on connections with other island nations.

 

Róisín de Buitléar has collaborated with artists from Islands around the world using original artworks created on miniature glass slides. Over 50 artists from 20 different Islands have contributed to the project. Taking old technology of vintage magic lanterns and combining new technology of digital projection this project is an exciting development in an on going interest in projected light and shadow. Engraving, painting, laminating, applique, or transparent decal are some of the ways images have been manipulated to create projectable imagery in glass. The collaborative imagery, particular location and projection will culminate in making the ISLANDERS a unique artwork in multiple venues.

AWD Studio presents "Fragile Correspondence", an exhibition of engraved glass communication between Róisín de Buitléar in Ireland, and Amy West in Italy, created especially for The Venice Glass Week 2019.

 

Two artists united by their passion for glass engraving and the incised line, this ongoing dialog explores the importance of making time to communicate, using glass engraving as their common language. In the exhibition, visitors can see individual and collaborative artwork in glass and paper, the application of various engraving techniques and tools, and the process of printing from engraved plates.

 

 

The exhibition will be opened until 15th November 2019, only upon appointment.

 

The inauguration of this exhibition will take place on Sunday 8th September, at the same venue.

We explore sound captured in glass in this beautiful exhibition of work by Irish glass artist Róisín de Buitléar, which forms part of the TradFest Children’s Hub 2018.

Featuring pieces from Róisín’s Irish Incantation/Ortha series, the exhibition features a series of beautiful glass objects that capture the essence of musical sound and pitch in glass form. Some of the sculptures are made to evoke the sound and duration of a musical note, others will remind you of musical instruments that look like they could be played.

In fact while you are visiting the exhibition, you will see a video of them being played by musicians Liam Ó Maonlaí and Peter O’Toole along with hearing Róisín talking about the inspiration for her work.

Alongside the exhibition display will be a fun interactive glass sound exploring area using glass objects found in everyday life that will enable you to try out making your own glass music.

venue: The ARK Cultural Centre for Children. Temple Bar, Dublin.
