Drawing Room

Crawford Art Gallery, Emmet Place

10am

Situated in the former drawing spaces of the Crawford School of Art – which relocated from our building in 1979 – this exhibition offers a cross-section of drawing works from the collection.

DRAWING ROOM highlights contemporary and historic practice, encompassing eighteenth-century sketches, nineteenth-century life drawings, and twentieth-century subject studies.

The exhibition features the work of Jo Allen, James Barry, Megan Eustace, Brian Fay, Angela Fewer, Samuel Forde, Seán Keating, Sarah Longley, Daniel Maclise, Walter A. Mulligan, John O’Leary, Suzy O'Mullane, Mervyn Peake, Kathy Prendergast, John Risi, Thomas Rowlandson, John Shinnors, Edith Somerville, Samuel Walsh, and William Willes.

Drawing is observation, curiosity, experiment, thought, freedom, and investigation. In presenting a diversity of styles and techniques together, this exhibition registers the changes in drawing practice and material choices over time, while also serving as an invitation for visitors to examine, linger – even draw!

DRAWING ROOM coincides with similar projects across Cork, including Drawing Connections (Sample-Studios), Drawbridge (MTU Crawford College of Art & Design), and Beyond Drawing (Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre).
