The Blue Egg Gallery is delighted to invite you to the official opening of Interconnections 2, a textile exhibition featuring the work of textile artists, four each from Ireland and Scotland. This will take place on Sat 2nd June at 2.30pm in the gallery at 22A John’s Gate Street, Wexford.
The guest speaker will be Johanna Roche. You will know Johanna from Kiltrea Pottery but you may not know of her background as a textile artist and weaver. Frances Crowe, one of the curators, will also give a short talk about the genesis of this exhibition.
This exhibition, curated by Frances Crowe and Joan Baxter, comes here from Boyle, Co. Roscommon where it was part of the 2018 International Fibre Arts Festival. This festival, the first of its kind in the country, was supported by Roscommon County Council and Creative Ireland and brought textile and fibre artists together to experiment, grow, exchange, create and learn from one another.
The exhibition comprises work by Frances Crowe, Mary Cuthbert, Terry Dunne and Angela Forte from Ireland and Joan Baxter, John Brennan, Amanda Gizzi and Elizabeth Radcliffe from Scotland. Also on display will be Timelines, a tapestry designed and woven collaboratively by a group of ten Irish weavers in Cork.
Interconnections 2 runs until July 7th. Gallery opening hours are 11.00am to 5.30pm Tuesday to Saturday or by appointment
To assist us with the arrangements for the opening, it would be helpful if you could confirm your attendance by Wednesday 30th May by e-mail at email@example.com or by phoning 053-9145862.
