Venue: PORTFOLIO @ Solomon – 4-26 Sept 2015
Running simultaneously in our PORTFOLIO @ Solomon design gallery next door, the latest PORTFOLIO exhibition focuses on BASKETRY & WOODTURNING, presenting over twenty innovative artworks by seven of this country’s most distinguished and lauded artists working with wood, willow and found natural materials. Featured makers include Bob Johnston, Alison Fitzgerald, Joe Hogan, Kathleen McCormick, Ian Hawthorne, Roger Bennett and Mark Hanvey (three of whom were selected for this year’s prestigious DCCoI ‘Critical Selection’ by a panel of Irish and International jurors). This stunning exhibition will showcase exceptional pieces created using materials from the natural world; including dyed wooden bowls and vessels with precious metal inlay, woodturned pieces designed with the line of the grain as an integral part and willow woven sculptural basketry. Each of the artists are exploring and developing new designs based on old traditions and promoting a deeper connection to nature.
