13 October 2017 to 13 January 2018
glór is delighted to announce the launch of Halcyon Days, a group exhibition of mixed media work from both established and emerging artists on Friday 13th October at 6.30pm.
Artists nationwide were asked to respond to the theme of Halcyon Days, a phrase which we now use nostalgically, recalling the seemingly endless sunny days of youth.
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.
