Crawford Art Gallery, Emmet Place
Thursday 22 March, 6pm – 7.30pm
Heroes & Villains - Tour and sketch in the gallery
FREE / No booking necessary
The exhibition Heroes and Villains features a gloriously eclectic collection of stories; pure scoundrels and fierce blaggards juxtaposed with the good, the just and the morally ambivalent.
Learn more about just some of these dastardly devils plucked from the gallery’s permanent collection of over 4,00 works. With pop-up contributions from Cork-based comic creators during the course of the exhibition, we invite you to join the eternal debate around the nature of good vs evil!
During Life-long learning week we invite you to join us for a free event exploring how artists represent heroes and villains, then join an artist – led workshop to create your own villainous character designs. No particular art experience is required and all are very welcome!
