'VALEDICTION' Solo exhibition at Galleri OKH, NO.. Until 23 September 2020.
ARTWORKS 2020 Carlow Arts Festival and VISUAL Annual Open Submission and Art Award 06 June - 18 October
For ARTWORKS 2020 artists were invited to take inspiration from John Tyndall, the Carlow Scientist who discovered why the sky is blue. Tyndall is understood to be one of the founders of climate science. 2020 marks the bicentennial of his birth in Leighlinbridge, Carlow.
This year’s open call invited artists to submit work that responds to the theme of climate and our natural environment. This exciting summer exhibition gathers a diverse selection of ideas and work from artists working nationally and internationally. Presenting work in film, painting, sculpture, new media and photography, ARTWORKS 2020 celebrates contemporary visual art and its potential to engage in new ways with our heightening awareness of environmental change.
ARTWORKS 2020 was selected by Carlow Arts Festival Director Jo Mangan, VISUAL Artistic Director and CEO Emma Lucy O' Brien and New York based artist and activist Katie Holten.
