Visual Artists Ireland are delighted to present another Visual Artists Café in Ormston House where we will launch our new ‘VAN | Chats’ series of talks. This series of talks will take place around the country and will feature artists discussing their current VAN articles with an audience of their peers. Our first talk will feature artist Andrew Duggan discussing his recent participation in the Eye’s Walk festival in Syros, Greece as well as the evolution of his wider practice to date.
This Visual Artists Café event brings together artists from across Limerick, Clare and Tipperary. We welcome artists and arts professionals to come along, share your work and build your network of peers and contacts.
The Café will consist of Show and Tell presentations from local artists and a VAI help-desk for one-on-one information sessions.
Show and Tell
The purpose of Show and Tell is to allow artists to present work or concepts to each other in an informal atmosphere. The events are also intended to provide the wider general audience with an inside view of artistic practice. A maximum of 10 artists will present as part of the Show and Tell over the course of the day.
