Alice Maher will take part in a group exhibition at Farmleigh Gallery, Phoenix Park, Castleknock, Dublin 15.
June 10th-August 7th
The exhibition, in Farmleigh Gallery, Phoenix Park comprises mainly sculptural work selected by artist Janet Mullarney, focusing on how the choice of specific materials makes certain sculptures work. The title refers to how the unity of both concept and the visual tangibility of the chosen material is imperative to the reading of the work, a quality that may often be overlooked. The artists are many and varied, the work is sculpture or certainly sculptural. Some of the work of the older artists, which was made in the 1990s juxtaposes well with work being made by younger artists now.
The artists are Cecily Brennan, Dorothy Cross, Maud Cotter, Aleana Egan, John Gibbons, Tony Hill, Mary Kelly, Alice Maher, Eileen McDonagh, Locky Morris, Paul Mosse, Helen O’Leary, Niamh O’Malley, Adrian Paci, Rachel Parry, Alan Phelan, Kathy Prendergast, Linda Quinlan, David Quinn, Eddie Rafferty, Charles Tyrrell, Michael Warren and Daphne Wright.
