The Office of Public Works is delighted to announce the official opening of ‘two birds/one stone’ exhibition which will be officially opened by Manchán Magan on Saturday 11 June 2016 at 2pm.

There will also be a talk by the curator, Janet Mullarney on Sunday 12 June 2016 at 2pm.

The exhibition, in Farmleigh Gallery, Phoenix Park comprises mainly sculptural work selected by artist Janet Mullarney, focusing on how the choice of specific materials makes certain sculptures work. The title refers to how the unity of both concept and the visual tangibility of the chosen material is imperative to the reading of the work, a quality that may often be overlooked. The artists are many and varied, the work is sculpture or certainly sculptural. Some of the work of the older artists, which was made in the 1990s juxtaposes well with work being made by younger artists now.

The artists are Cecily Brennan, Dorothy Cross, Maud Cotter, Aleana Egan, John Gibbons, Tony Hill, Mary Kelly, Alice Maher, Eileen McDonagh, Locky Morris, Paul Mosse, Helen O’Leary, Niamh O’Malley, Adrian Paci, Rachel Parry, Alan Phelan, Kathy Prendergast, Linda Quinlan, David Quinn, Eddie Rafferty, Charles Tyrrell, Michael Warren and Daphne Wright.
