Untitled [landscape]

14 September 18

"Welcome to Untitled [landscape], the latest in a series of joint art exhibitions organised by the Department of Finance (DoF) and the Office of Public Works (OPW). Both Departments have been working in partnership organising art exhibitions since the late 1990s. These exhibitions, which have toured to many venues across the island, bring both collections to wider public audiences.

This year the exhibition focuses on the theme of landscape, and the thirty artworks chosen reflect the variety of this genre in each collection. Artists were invited to provide information about their selected artwork for the catalogue.

The exhibition will tour four venues. It will begin in September 2018 in The Bridewell Centre, Magherafelt. It will then travel to Rathfarnham Castle, Dublin in November 2018. The third venue in February 2019 is the Luan Gallery, Athlone, and the final venue is Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre, Limavady, in April to May 2019.

We would like to acknowledge the excellent co-operation we have received from the venues. We also wish to thank all the included artists, for without their work this exhibition would not be possible.

It is with great pleasure that we bring you this exhibition."
