I got an email from one of the 3rd year printmaking students of Limerick College of Art and Design this week about an exhibition they’re kicking off next week called ‘Recollect’. I was delighted to receive it. For three reasons. The first is that I studied sculpture there. Many years ago. So I got all nostalgic. I had a great time and learnt much. The second, that it took initiative to get in touch and I always admire get up and go. And thirdly it illustrated the difference between now and then. When I went to art college there was no email, people still used dial phones and wrote letters. It was all so different. Utterly and completely. So to the point. Limerick School of Art and design’s third year printmaking students are showcasing their hard work over the last year in an exhibition ‘Recollect.’ The event takes place in Raggle Taggle Studio, 7 Sarsfield street, Limerick on Thursday 25th April @ 8pm and runs until 2nd May. The curator Caelan Bristow has selected a wide variety of work, ranging from traditional printmaking to photography and video to installation exploring an assortment of themes and concepts.
