Here is the press release!
The Trinity College Visual Arts Society is delighted to present the second annual Trinity Exhibition, a showcase of artwork by the staff and students of Trinity College Dublin. It will run from the 6th to the 8th of December in the commercial Oisín Gallery at 44 Westland Row. Last year’s highly successful exhibition was the first of its kind since 1996 and the first fully student organised exhibition in the university’s history.
The Trinity Exhibition provides an outlet for all types of creative expression within the college, giving both students and staff with artistic inclinations a chance to showcase their works and talents. In a time when students are being pushed towards “practical” careers and the Irish art community is struggling to survive, The Trinity Exhibition has proven to be a much-needed opportunity to show the talent and ability that exists within the academic framework of the college.
The works involve a variety of mediums, from painting and drawing to photography, digital art and film. The response from the college’s artistic community has been staggering, with more than 200 works initially submitted for consideration. After a careful selection process a smaller collection been chosen to be exhibited from a cross section of Trinity society, ranging from students of all levels and disciplines, academic staff, managerial officers, library staff and technical support.
The exhibition will be opened at 6.30pm on Monday the 6th of December, launched by a special reception with refreshments and entertainment.
The exhibition runs until Wednesday the 8th of December. It will be open to the public from 9.30am to 5.30pm.
