Sustaining Your Artistic Practice

Presented by Bealtaine Festival in partnership with Limerick City Gallery of Art and EVA International and supported by Limerick City & County Council, this event will focus on the subtle, and often not so subtle, shifts artists make in their practice as their careers progress. Individual presentations by artists including Deirdre O’Mahony, Locky Morris, Austin McQuinn and Pauline Goggin will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Marian Fitzgibbon where each artist has been asked to reflect on their careers through the lens of the progressions they’ve made to sustain their work. 

23 May 2018, 11am – 3.30pm at LCGA

The capacity for this event is limited, booking is essential.
