Sharman Crawford Street, Cork | Preview 6pm June 7

The 2013 CIT Crawford College of Art and Design Degree Show LIMINAL will run from 8th – 15th June. It will be held, as always, at the CCAD campus on Sharman Crawford Street. The opening ceremony on the evening of June 7th promises to be a lively event with numerous prizes and bursaries being awarded. Fifty students will show work in a variety of media including ceramics, glass, drawing, painting, print, film, photography, sculpture and installation. This work will be the culmination of four years of intensive and highly rewarding study. The title LIMINAL, meaning threshold, signifies a pause before embarking on a new creative adventure.


The CCAD curriculum provides a studio and workshop based education in Fine Art or Ceramics during which students are introduced to the skills and philosophies needed to develop an individual art practice. The course can also be a gateway to further studies or to a career in the visual arts.

Paul Sullivan, director of Static Gallery, Liverpool, will open the show. An artist as well as a gallery director, Paul is familiar with the many challenges facing artists and art professionals today. He is associated with the arts events Cork Caucus, 2005, and Terminal Convention, 2011. The latter afforded many Corkonians the welcome opportunity to pay a nostalgic visit to the old terminal at Cork airport.

 

The degree year students of CCAD have one short week to transform the studios and work areas throughout the building into exhibition spaces. Preparations for the show, however, start in January and can be followed online through the LIMINAL Facebook page, blog and website. A catalogue will be on sale during the show.

 

The exhibition runs from 8 – 15th June, 11am-6pm (Sunday 12 – 6pm).
Entry is free and open to all.
