Adornment (Re-use and Re-imagine)

6 August 2022 @ 11:00 am - 16 September 2022 @ 5:00 pm


The ACJSNI Re-Use + Re-Imagine Adornment Project is a collaborative venture between 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 towards the human experience of making, and developed their specialisms creating unexpected synergies and directions, in materials and narratives. The diversity of approaches has been documented throughout the project spanning June and July. The visuals, videos and recordings of processes will form part of the Exhibition supporting the finished pieces and providing contexts that enrich understanding.

Artist talks will take place in the gallery on 20th August and 3rd September.

ACJSNI will be running a Lace-making workshop with National & International award winning lace designer and maker Theresa Kelly in the gallery on 27th August.

Title: Carrickmacross Lace Workshop – 3D Carrickmacross Lace Flax Flower.


Please note: the exhibition is open Tuesday – Saturday.
