Wild Geese – The Irish In America

July 9 – July 28

‘Wild Geese: The Irish in America’ was an exhibition that celebrated the creativity of immigrant sons and daughters, as well as those who have left their native shore in recent years.The exhibition looked at the contribution that the artists are making the contemporary craft world.Their artistry, innovation and craftsmanship are exceptional.Like their ancestors, they travelled far and have been influenced by the world around them.Some can trace a definite connection to their past while others celebrate the difference.The common link is their heritage, vision and passion for their craft.For many it is a homecoming.For others, it is an opportunity to share the past and look to the future whilst celebrating the pioneers of contemporary craft.
