Uncover: an exhibition by graduates of the BA Visual Art Degree Programme Sherkin Island 2016
Following a hugely successful art-trail on Sherkin Island, the graduates of the Sherkin Island BA Visual Art Degree Programme are bringing their work to the mainland. Uncover will launch at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre on Friday 9 September at 7.00pm.
Over 1000 visitors flocked to the island to see the graduates’ exhibition. Uncover at Uillinn is another opportunity to enjoy the work of these new emerging talents and preview some potentially future greats.
A selection of the artwork displayed on the island has been chosen to be included in Uncover. Curated by Ann Davoren, Director of WCAC, the graduates’ work will spread across both galleries and will include a diverse range of media encompassing painting, drawing, multimedia work, film, photography, sound and installation.
This year’s ones to watch are Deirdre Buckley Cairns, Lesley Cox, Lucy Cox, Joe Davis, Jean Dunne, Monica Dunne, Ellès Innemee, Deirdre Leddin, Brigid O’Connell Madden, Clare McLaughlin, Daireen McMullan, Donal O’Connor, Marika O’Sullivan, Detlef Schlich, Philomena Smith, Ben Townsend and Ciara Ward.
The BA Visual Art is an innovative honours degree programme delivered on Sherkin Island by Dublin Institute of Technology in partnership with Sherkin Island Development Society and West Cork Arts Centre.
The exhibition will be opened by Dr Tina Kinsella, Lecturer in Critical Theory, School of Creative Arts, Dublin Institute of Technology.
