Join us for the exhibition opening and the 2022 Golden Fleece Award Ceremony from 2 to 3.30pm, on Saturday 23 April. All welcome.
2022 marks 21 years of the Golden Fleece Award, an independent, private award established at the bequest of Helen Lillias Mitchell (1915-2000).
The Golden Fleece Award is the largest prize open to both artists and makers in Ireland. Its mission, enacted in accordance with the wishes of its founder, is to provide resources for practising contemporary visual artists and makers to innovate and develop their artistic vision.
This hugely eclectic and diverse exhibition will present work from past award recipients. It will provide a unique insight into contemporary making and visual arts over the last 20 years. Work by over 45 artists and makers working in digital art, jewellery, painting, fashion, furniture, ceramics, basketry, photography and textiles will be exhibited.
