Post//Graduate Exhibition at James Barry Exhibition Centre

11 September, 2018

 

(Post) is the CIT “Arts Fest” & Student Engagement Award exhibition, featuring selected graduates of Fine Art from CIT Crawford College of Art & Design 2018: Susan Dolan, Aneta Sawicka, Anna Gallwey, and Kevin McDonald. Curated by CIT CCAD 2017 graduate Wilhelmina Van der Bent, this exhibition will be open at the James Barry Exhibition Centre from Wednesday 12th September, with an Opening Reception on Wednesday 19th September, running until 12th October open Mon – Fri 11-5pm. Open to all to visit.

This is the first exhibition at the James Barry Exhibition Centre for the 2018/19 academic year. It aims to engage both new and returning students and staff with thoughts and ideas about the conceptual and physical sense of place, through the lens of visual art. This the second year a recent graduate was asked to come on board to assist with curating the exhibition, and we hope this show will provoke some thoughts and questions, and encourage the feeling that everything is possible.

It is presented by CIT Arts Office and Good Start, both part of AnSEO – CIT Student Engagement Office.

The works in the exhibition will include pieces from the recent Degree Show, as well as new works developed in recent days and weeks

Opening Reception

There will be an Opening Reception on Wednesday 19th September, from 6-8pm. All are welcome, and some refreshments will be served. Guest Speaker is Trish Brennan, Head of Fine Art at CIT CCAD.
