CONVERSATIONS ON Making, an exhibition of work by members of the Engage Art Studios, opens this evening at 7pm in the studio space on the top floor of The Cathedral Building, Middle Street.
The exhibition questions how an artwork comes into being; how is the work made; and how do the thought processes transition from the artist's mind and into the finished piece? The exhibition will feature sketches, works in progress, and new work.
The opening night will also see the launch of Engage's Emerging Artist Residency Award, in partnership with the Galway Arts Centre and Galway City Art Office. It offers one emerging artist a six month studio residency, an exhibition in the Galway Arts Centre, and €1000 cash prize. The award will be presented by Galway City arts officer James Harrold. All are welcome.
