About the event
Closed Sundays and Mondays
Lavit Gallery presents an exhibition of artwork that utilises or references the medium of textiles.
Represented are artist and makers for whom textiles are the sole material, artists for whom the medium is a new departure or a diversification and those for whom fabrics are a recurring theme or subject. As well as being a functional and widely used material in our everyday lives, textiles as an artform are currently enjoying a renaissance of sorts having been incorporated into contemporary art practice as ‘textile art’ or ‘fibre art’.
“At Lavit Gallery we have been working with makers and artists in order to produce exhibits that blur the boundaries between fine art and craft, focusing on work that straddles both definitions comfortably whilst also highlighting commonalities across the perceived divide in terms of concept, process and presentation.”
Exhibiting artists include Laura Angell, George Bolster, Ceadogán Rugs (designs by Deirdre Breen and Shane O’Driscoll, Myra Jago, Allyson Keehan, Richard Malone, Evelyn Montague, Ailbhe Ní Bhriain, Helen O’Shea, Caroline Schofield, Margo Selby, Matt Smith, Jennifer Trouton and Leiko Uchiyama.The exhibition forms part of Lavit Gallery’s 60 year anniversary programme, Cork Arts Society having been formed in 1963.
