‘Upstarter’s Interspace’

Exhibition runs until Sunday, 16th January 2022

Custom House Studios is delighted to launch ‘Upstarter’s Interspace’, two augmented reality art works, by artists from Carrowbeg Enterprises, in association with guest artist Orla Casey.

Orla facilitated 8 workshops, with artists Trish Kelly, Sarah Kelly, Anna Rose Lowry, Máire Maguire, Gerry O’Malley and Una Kearns. Together they explored and expanded the tradition of portraiture, from collage, through computer aided design programs to create two augmented reality pieces.

In 2021 this project involves a process which transforms the participants’ imagery and experience from printmaking and drawings into augmented reality imagery.  This process facilitates imagery making reflective of their personal interests and daily lives. Key aspects is an emphasis on participants self- motivation and expression,  the  place of the workshop within a weekly schedule and routine of activities, and the active involvement and support of staff from Carrowbeg Enterprises.

Workshops focus on encouragement and support for participants to develop their own expression and imagery through assistance in the use of different techniques. Emphasis on processes which develop and transform the participants’ imagery into another medium. This transforming of imagery provides a vital opportunity and context for each participant to engage in a complex process, which in turn acts to enrich the individuals’ experience of working on an art project on a regular weekly routine.

Artist facilitators involved: Caroline Masterson, Breda Burns and Orla Casey.
Project supported by Mayo County Council, Western Care and MSLETB.


Opening hours:
Monday – Friday (10am – 5pm).
Saturday/Sunday/ Bank Holiday (1pm – 4.30pm).
