A GROUP of American and Irish artists have joined forces for a collaborative exhibition, entitled 003D, which opens in the Galway Arts Centre next week.
003D is a collaborative exhibition between the Galway based artists collective Expanded Draught and master’s degree students from Louisiana State University.
The two groups were initially brought together by Expanded Draught member Allison Regan who moved to Louisiana in 2008 to start a three year master’s degree in sculpture. The idea for the collaboration was triggered after the collective were forced to figure out a new way of working with the founder member who was now based overseas.
The artists involved are ceramist Lindsey Maestri (Arkansas ); sculptors Cody Arnall (Oklahoma ), David Carpenter (Arkansas ), Alwyn Revill (Dublin ), Allison Regan (Galway ), Kit French (Virginia ), Dave Callan (Dundalk ), painter Tyler Mackie (Oregon ), and printmaker Breege Hynes (Galway ).
Curated by Galwegian Gina Ruane and partly funded by the LSU, the exhibition opens on Monday at 6pm on the ground floor of GAC and will run until Saturday 27. The artists are already in Galway and the public will get the opportunity to meet them in the gallery space on June 22 at 5pm.
