Hand-Made Contemporary Craft Exhibition now on

The Hand Made Contemporary Craft Exhibition is running at the Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre in Limavady until Saturday, 1 September.

The exhibition in the Centre’s Keady Gallery features the work of five makers currently resident in Northern Ireland - Rachel Dickson, Alison Lowry, Firebox Ceramics, Andrea Hayes and Welig Crafts. Craftwork exhibited spans glassware, ceramics, textiles, paper sculpture, wood sculpture and more.

Desima Connolly, Arts & Cultural Services Officer, who curated the exhibition, said: “The quality of the work you will see speaks volumes about the healthy status of contemporary craft in Northern Ireland. It is important that the artistic excellence and professional dedication of our resident artists is nurtured, showcased and celebrated.

“I am delighted to have curated this exhibition and further enhance our ongoing support of these five talented makers. This is a wonderful opportunity for craftspeople in the North West to engage with quality production and for anyone to enjoy the absolutely stunning works selected.”

Hand Made is part of the Craft Month Initiative by Craft NI and another crafts exhibition, The Creative Peninsula, is also on show in the centre’s Broighter Gallery. Both shows continue until 1 September.

Gallery opening times are Monday to Friday 9.30am-5pm and Saturday 10am-2pm and admission is free. For further information, visit www.roevalleyarts.com and for full Craft Month listings, visit www.craftni.org
