Re-Use + Re-Imagine Adornment Project

The ACJSNI Re-Use + Re-Imagine Adornment Project is a collaborative venture between 10 artist / makers related to the linen heritage of R-Space Gallery. The project highlights the distinct characteristics of 3-Dimensional research in Silversmith, Jewellery and Textile Art practices. The three craft areas see frequent overlaps in scale, materials, and methods of construction which, when combined, create potential for dynamic statements that push beyond traditional boundaries.

The artists present work that has explored a cross-over of sensitivities and developed their specialisms to create unexpected synergies and directions. The documented processes will be displayed with the finished pieces in the exhibition.

Exhibitors: Anne Earls Boylan, Céline Traynor, Clodagh Molloy, Heather Dornan Wilson, Robyn Galway, Sarah Cathers, Shannon McShane, Stuart Cairns, Theresa Kelly.

Get involved!
