Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA) is delighted to present Limerick Connections an exhibition of works by artists associated with Limerick from the 70s to the present day.
The Permanent Collection has a very proud tradition of supporting artists from this era including Jack Donovan, Walter Verling, Tom Fitzgerald, Vivienne Bogan, John Shinnors through the 80s and 90s with artists Diana Copperwhite, Áine Nic Giolla Coda and Robert Ryan represented. We are delighted to include work by younger artists such as Ramon Kassam and Gillian Kenny and finally new work by graduates from the recent 2020 Degree show which was held in LCGA.
67 artists are included in the show with a strong emphasis on painting. The diverse nature of the exhibition gives a really full appraisal of how techniques and subject matter have changed over the last fifty years but the fundamental gesture of painting remains the same.
It seemed appropriate after this period of lockdown to “dust down” that this treasure trove of works by artists who have won national acclaim and younger artists who undoubtedly will go on to great things but who are strongly connected to Limerick should be honoured here in Limerick City Gallery of Art.
Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm
Sunday: 12 noon - 5pm
