MAIN GALLERY + PORTFOLIO @ Solomon
22 May – 4 July 2015
From Friday 22nd May to Saturday 4th July, Solomon Fine Art, in conjunction with the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI), Irish Design 2015 (ID2015) and The Doyle Collection, is pleased to host an exhibition of FURNITURE by Ireland’s most renowned artists and makers. The exhibition has been co-curated with LyonsKelly architects and interior designers and will be showing in both Solomon gallery venues.
PORTFOLIO: Furniture sees both galleries utterly transformed with the two spaces divided into different ‘rooms’, each furnished with drapes, additional lighting, rugs, textiles, paintings and sculpture. The smart layout, designed and dressed by Eoin Lyons and John Kelly of LYONSKELLY, beautifully showcases the very best of Irish contemporary design.
PORTFOLIO: Furniture presents over 60 innovative pieces by over twenty highly regarded furniture makers and designers, working in a centuries-old continuum. Featured artists include Zelouf + Bell, Tricia Harris, Klimmek & Henderson, Dunleavy Bespoke, John Lee and Shane Holland.
PORTFOLIO: Furniture is part of a twelve month schedule of exhibitions at the Solomon which aims to showcase the DCCoI’s PORTFOLIO programme of over 100 of Ireland’s most renowned designers and makers in the following disciplines: Ceramics, Glass, Jewellery, Metals, Paper, Textiles, Calligraphy, Furniture, Woodturning and Basketry. All artworks on display in PORTFOLIO @ Solomon will be available to purchase, providing visitors and collectors with a unique opportunity to acquire one-off or limited edition pieces from internationally collected and emerging practitioners working to the highest standards of design, quality and technical skill.
