Drawing Masterclass with Arno Kramer at The Model, Sligo

Date: Tuesday, 31 October 2017
Time: 10am – 5pm
Cost: €60/€40
Location: The Model, Sligo
Artists, with a focus on drawing in their practice, are invited to participate in a one day masterclass with Dutch artist and curator Arno Kramer, at The Model.

The objective of offering this masterclass in drawing is to focus on already existing works from the participating artists. Kramer asks that each artist bring at least 10 recent drawings, which can form the beginning of critical debate during the day. Critique will be offered on the works, as well as suggestions on how to continue making drawings from a new and interesting perspective. It does not matter what the specific content of the drawings is. Every subject or object as a starting point for work is welcome. The main concern is that the drawing has an autonomous quality and is an original piece of art, not a preparatory sketch for a painting or sculpture.

Find Your Gods | ShelkyBean at Ballina Arts Centre, Co. Mayo

14 September to 28 October 2017

Exhibition of digital illustrations by Kiltimagh based artist, ShelkyBean. Modern day gods take many forms; actors, musicians, artists, political figures. They are necessary to navigate through the world which is “dark and full of terrors”. ShelkyBean has created portraits based on her own collection of gods, tenderly arranging them in dream landscapes, existing somewhere between fan and allegorical art. They are an attempt to question many issues, while also keeping in mind, these individuals we raise to god-like status, are fallible human beings too.

Supported by Mayo County Council

Admission free and all are welcome.

Ceramic work is presented by Helen Griffin, Niamh Harte and Jane Seymour; textile artists include Joke Buursma and Nicola Henley, and beautiful fine art prints come from Ria Czerniak-LeBov; Norah Brennan; Debbie Godsell; Maeve Coulter; Johnny Horne and Louise Leonard. The work of two photographers features – that of Hennessey Award nominee Gerry Blake and Mark Baker with his Portraits of Hebron. Sara Dowling has produced a fascinating video and performance piece, whilst Maree Hensey and Catriona Moloney have created work that is both poignant and magical, and laden with nostalgia.

Painters featured include Nathalie El Baba, Vivienne Bogan, Imelda Bradly, Tom Climent, Wil Gilchrist, Kevin Lowery, Jill Miller, Adam Pomeroy and David Smith. Each painter has responded to the theme differently and has created captivating and inspirational work for glór’s gallery spaces.

One artist will receive a €2500 Curator’s Award on the opening evening of the exhibition.

The exhibition will be opened on Friday 13th October by Dr. Eleanor Flegg, Writer and Craft Historian.
