Chrysalis is a group exhibition showing at the James Barry Exhibition Centre, encompassing a variety of new artworks from CCAD third year BA Fine Art, MTU. This show has been organised by the students and staff of third year Fine Art. The work has been selected by curator, Arts Council of Ireland adviser and artist mentor, Eamonn Maxwell. The exhibition is supported by the Le Chéile fund and the MTU Arts Office.
Chrysalis incorporates an impressive array of media and processes which includes, painting, drawing, sculpture, lens-based media and print. Uniting this broad collection of works is the Chrysalis stage - a sheltered state of being or growth in which metamorphosis takes place. It holds all the potential promise for the future as well as remnants of the hardships faced over the past few years.
The exhibition is a celebration of the students nearing the end of the third year of a four-year degree, before they emerge into the professional world as practicing artists. At this stage of their degree, they have great freedom to explore and develop their work with the support and critique of peers and tutors. The exhibition invites viewers to relish in this time of metamorphosis.
Chrysalis will be OPENED by Eamonn Maxwell at the
James Barry Exhibition Centre, Bishopstown
Wednesday April 19th at 12pm.
