Exhibition opening: Thursday 26th April 2018 from 6pm with opening words from Aislinn O’ Keeffe, a practicing visual artist and activist with ROSA.

As part of LP’s annual programming, this exhibition will be held in Unit 2A, Chapel Court, Cathedral Place (formerly the Garryowen Community Development Project office) and will continue until Saturday 12th May inclusive.  Please note that the exhibition will open from Wednesday – Saturday each week, and from 12pm – 5.15pm each of the days listed.

Peyton is the recipient of the 2017/18 Limerick Printmakers Bursary Award, an accolade bestowed on an outstanding graduate of LSAD’s ‘Printmaking and Contemporary Practice’ degree program each year.
The award has become an integral part of Limerick Printmakers remit and one that reinforces Limerick Printmakers core ethos of both promoting printmaking as an artform and supporting emerging artists working within the discipline.

Menstruation is both a ritualized and regulated subject, viewed historically as a taboo topic that still persists today. This exhibition encourages menstruation to be the forefront of a positive conversation. The piece “Absorb” was created in response to the tampon and its disposable nature. The artists subtle use of menstrual blood throughout the work introduces a typically censored matter into the public setting. The inclusion of the menstrual cup in the work promotes an environmentally positive alternative to traditional sanitary products. Peyton’s honest representation of the female body is encapsulated within the mixed medium nature of her work.
