Niamh Sharkey Laureate na nÓg and Illustrators Ireland
16 April to 10 May 2014
Evening reception: Wednesday 16 April, 5.30 – 8.00pm
Niamh Sharkey is one of the leading names for illustration in Ireland and beyond, and has been a driving force for contemporary Illustration Art in Dublin since her first book in 1995. Following a host of accolades and awards Niamh was elected as the Irish Children’s Laureate, Laureate na nÓg, in 2012, and has worked tirelessly over the past two years to promote books, reading and illustration. Our own association with Niamh stretches back a decade, and we celebrate her years as the Laureate with this retrospective exhibition as her time in this role reaches its conclusion. A broad range of her work will be on show reflecting her enduring talent and skill, seen in a variety of books and animation produced over recent years.
Joining Niamh we welcome Illustrators Ireland, a non-profit organisation established in 2000 to support and nurture the development of Illustration Art in Ireland. This progressive and ever-growing community has succeeded in raising the profile of working artists considerably over the past decade, and includes famous names such as PJ Lynch, who will be exhibiting alongside his close friend Niamh. This exhibition will include twenty artists from this group with a broad, colourful and vivid range of artwork, and we warmly welcome them to the gallery.
All artwork is offered for sale.
