Straight Out Of Ireland 2022
Philadelphia - Irish Diaspora Centre
These are a series of paintings I created on residencies in the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in May & October supported by Meath Arts Office with the Professional Development Award 2022 in preparation for a group show called Straight Out Of Ireland in Philadelphia this November.
The Irish Diaspora Center of Philadelphia, hosted their second annual Straight Out of Ireland exhibit, alongside the 26 artists from Ireland and the 10 Philadelphia local artists with their various forms of art, which were inspired by the contemporary offerings of the Irish arts and crafts
industry, on November 11th through November 13, 2022, at Sacred Heart Academy in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.
The international showcasing of Straight Out of Ireland brings the evolution of traditional Irish art to life by exhibiting a range of aesthetics that highlight the modern style and soul of Ireland, including ceramics, drawings, glass, jewelry, paintings, photography, and more.
