July 30th - August 10th 2013

In keeping with the Lavit Gallery's long standing policy of  helping and promoting emerging artists - our next show is  this year's Fledglings exhibition, featuring work from a selection of recent graduates of the Crawford College of Art and Design..

Thirteen artists have been selected to participate in this year's exhibition - Amber Broughton, Joe Butler, Ellen Byrne, Mary Coffey Woodward, Deirdre Cronin, Judy Fisher, Trees Gevers, Stephanie Hodgers, Jessie Malone, Rory McGovern, Irene Meade, Susan O'Leary and Siobhain Steele

Paintings, charcoal and pencil drawings, prints, ceramics and photography all feature.  Large graphic portraits, painterly figurative studies, atmospheric landscapes, layered digital images of a familiar cork landmark, fine pencil drawings of scattered objects, precious ceramic vessels are just some of what can be seen in this exhibition.

 For many of these recent graduates and students it is their first opportunity to show work in a professional gallery setting.   For the viewers it is a chance to see different examples of the  graduates work or the work in a new light away from the college setting.  In these tough times artists need all the encouragement they can get, to keep on the track of their early career paths, and the Lavit Gallery would like to acknowledge Parfrey Murphy Chartered Accountants who have sponsored this show.

 This exhibition will be officially opened by Orla Flynn - Head of CIT Crawford College of Art and Design, on Tuesday  July 30th at 8p.m. and will run until August 10th.
