Workshops and Lecture | Irish Contemporary Ceramics Collection 2017, the Hunt Museum

29 November

This year sees three new additions to the Irish Contemporary Ceramics Collection. Work by Marcus O’Mahony, Christy Keeney and Anne Butler will join this all-island collection, a joint project between Limerick School of Art and Design (LIT) and the Hunt Museum, Limerick. To coincide with the acquisition of new works, LSAD will host two full days of workshops and lectures, which are open to all.

The lectures will take place in the Church Gallery, Limerick School of Art and Design, Clare St, Limerick from 10am – 3.30pm, followed by a reception at the Hunt Museum from 4pm – 6pm where the new additions to the collection will be unveiled.

In addition, this year, with the support of the Design and Craft Council of Ireland and Applied Arts Ireland, Christy Keeney and Anne Butler will demonstrate their making techniques on Tuesday 28th November at Limerick School of Art and Design Ceramics Programme from 10am – 4.30pm.

Now in its third year, it is envisioned that this joint project between Limerick School of Art and Design (LIT) and the Hunt Museum, Limerick, where the collection is housed, will grow annually to reflect the richness, diversity and creativity of contemporary Irish ceramic practice. Works from the collection are on permanent display in the Hunt Museum and include pieces by Sara Flynn, Jack Doherty, Deirdre McLoughlin, Frances Lambe, Henry Pim, Claire Curneen, Ingrid Murphy, Katharine West and Cormac Boydell.

Both events are free, but booking is required. Please contact owen.quinlan@lit.ie to reserve a place.
