I don't always have the time to get out to all the openings I'd like. But sometimes I'm really glad I do. Case in point: This week's show of works from third and fourth year students at the Limerick School of Art & Design. Cirque de Céramique features finished works and ideas in progress. The results cover the widest range of techniques and forms, from more-or-less traditional pottery to decorative items and even wearable art.
You only have until Friday 5 March to get out and see this exceptional show. There's a catalogue to purchase so you need not be content with my snapshots.
The location is the beautiful Church Gallery in the renovated college on Claire Street. While you are in the building check out the other items in the lobby and go through the main doors to the left to view a second exhibition: photographs of work by the fashion students. This show is much less successful, largely because of the quality of the printing. But still worth a look!
