ABBEYLEIX FURTHER EDUCATION CENTRE
Art Craft Design Exhibition
Thursday 30th May - Thursday 26th June
Exhibition Opening Thursday 30th May at 6pm
An exciting blend of contemporary art from emerging artists working in ceramics, textiles, drawing and painting; exploring concepts of self-identity, landscape, memories and childhood.
The work on display includes a piece from each student who has completed either FETAC level 5 or 6 within the art department of the centre. The range of work varies from drawing to painting, ceramics to textiles and allows the viewer an insight into the varied disciplines available. This year, each student was given the opportunity to submit a proposal to Dunamaise. This professional approach gave the students a taste of the process involved in applying to exhibit work in the professional arena.
This is the 14th year of Art/Craft/Design at Abbeyleix FEC and the 5th year of Art and Business. Emphasis within the art department has always been of a high standard of art education within an environment that allows, encourages and nurtures the creative process. The studio in Abbeyleix prides itself on an individual approach to learning and the development of contemporary art practice. The benefit of this can be seen in the number of students who have successfully progressed to third level.
The exhibition will continue until 26th June 2013. For more information check out the art department’s website www.art.abbeyleixfec.ie or join them on Facebook at Abbeyleix FEC.
