Group Critique and Long Lunch

As the exhibition draws closer we got together to review the work we had made during the practical workshops and at home or in the studio. We met at the Saldanha Gallery at Artlink Fort Dunree which will be the venue for the exhibition in April. A video document of the exhibition will be shown in the Tower Museum.

We worked our way through each of the pieces. Sometimes selecting the best version of a print, sometime discussing final edits, ways of presenting. There were a few ‘lightbulb’ moments were the works and the venue joined up so nicely.

We mulled of it all over a delicious lunch that included lots of home-made goodies soup, bread and maybe a few too many cakes and pies. We decided on press officers, a graphic designer and a photographer. All we needed now was some frames and screens and we’re ready to launch.

Practical Workshops

It was very important for the group to have the opportunity to enhance their skills, develop their practice and have a chance to produce a physical outcome. It was decided we would have workshops in Creative Writing, Film Editing and Printmaking.

In this beautiful region we are blessed with some very talented people and so we reached out to Bernie mcGill (author), Rory McSwiggan (film maker, performer) and Paul Barwise (artist and master printmaker) to facilitate workshops that would inspire and energies participants and enable them to develop their ideas. The workshops took place at Nerve Centre and Derry Print Workshop. The outcomes will form part of the upcoming exhibition.
