Cruinniu na nOg 2022 - Make Space

Cruinniu na nOg 2022 - Make Space

Posted: May 18 2022

Children and their carers are invited to explore and spend time together in this beautiful sensory play space for children of 3 years and up designed to
explore a variety of materials (wood, stone, sand, mirrors, modelling clay, fabric) and processes (weaving, plaiting, drawing, making, arranging).
Created by art educator Anne Bradley, this space was originally designed as a response room for Elemental, a sculptural
exhibition for children by artists Caoimhe Kilfeather and Karl Burke curated by Cleo Fagan of Superprojects.


Make Space would provide a contemplative, reflective place encouraging children and adults to explore a variety of natural materials considering their physical qualities: weight, texture, colour, sound. Participants are invited to consider how these everyday materials make up the natural and built environment around us. They are encouraged to manipulate and explore the characteristics of the materials through pouring, weaving, tracing, mark making, arranging.


The space also provides a place for relaxing, open-ended, intergenerational shared play and the opportunity for quiet, reflective conversation.
Ideally Make Space would be installed in a gallery space or other public context such as a library or museum.

Blakestown Students plant micro forest of 450 native broadleaf trees on school grounds.

This week students of Blakestown Community School proudly launched their Micro Forest of over 450 broadleaf trees on the school grounds. This beautiful concept of planting a forest outside of their art classroom was developed by artist Gareth Kennedy in partnership with woodwright Eoin Donnelly.

The art project, co-produced by Fingal County Council Arts Office and Superprojects, involved seasonal art and ecology activities led by Gareth and Eoin. It included tree planting, wood splitting and turning, mulching, and planting while learning about the ecology of our native woodlands and contemporary art practice in the open air.

Fox, Bird, River, Sing! An audio adventure for families of all ages & all abilities.

Premiere: RTE Jnr 11.55 am and 4.55 pm Saturday 12th June 2021

(Excerpt) 'Where the land meets the salty water you stand, barefoot.  The sea laps upon your feet and in-between your toes. It’s dawn and the birds are wakening the land and as you lift your eyes, you see the sun peep over the blue horizon. It all looks mysterious today. You curl your hands to your eyes to make magic binoculars and as you scan the horizon you see appearing far away, where the sky meets the sea, a red fur-bodied, big-eared, white-chested creature sitting proudly on a floating log, the wise Red Fox'

This radio play is a whole family audio adventure that transports listeners from the sea to the singing forest on an epic, interactive, musical journey of dancing and singing, frolics with curious creatures and fantastic fun for the whole family. You decide where the venue is; the comfort of your own sitting room, garden or forest. Turn on your imagination, tune in the radio or download the audio link and travel through rich soundscapes and beautiful music in the world of Fox, Bird, River, Sing!

‘Talisman’

A creative collaboration between young people from St. Joseph’s Secondary School, Rush and artist Barbara Knežević. 

Commissioned by Fingal County Council’s Arts Office on the occasion of Cruinniú na nóg 2021.

The project introduced TY students of St. Joseph’s Secondary School to Barbara’s artistic practice and the idea of ‘a collection’.  Through virtual engagements the students learned about materials such as precious stones, clay and wax used by Barbara in her work. The group explored the collection of Newbridge House, Donabate and discussed why people collect objects, what makes some objects more precious to us than others and what meaning materials and objects can carry.

What Do You See? Let's Explore the artwork of Catherine Barron.

Fingal Arts Office recently Celebrated 25 Years of Collecting Art! Over the next few days we will share an artwork from this amazing collection with you and invite you to respond with your own masterpieces.Ideal for all ages and abilities, you might like to focus on developing your drawing or painting skills by recreating the artwork you see, or you might prefer to focus on a small detail to get started and then let your imagination run wild to create your very own original piece in response. The choice is yours! All we ask is that you share your finished artwork for us all to see and enjoy. This way we stay together and connected through art.

Today we are delighted to share ‘Soup & Bread’ by Irish Artist Catherine Barron. It was made in 2013 using acrylic ink on sheet metal.  Artists use lots of different techniques and materials for creating their artwork. What do you think about the materials used to make this work, look at its shape? Can you look around your home and find interesting materials to draw or paint directly on to? Catherine once said that ‘windows frame a particular place, time and way of life. They are the eyes of a home’. Using your window look outside and capture the shapes, colours or objects you see. In Catherine’s piece she is looking from the outside in. Look around your home for materials to draw, colour and paint with; magazines & fabric cuttings for great for collage, what else can you find? Using your materials create an artwork in response to Catherine’s piece.

Let’s begin with Irish Artist John Kindness. This print is called, ‘Charles Coote’, made in 1998, using two plate etching, aquatint & drypoint. Artists explore their subject matter in detail and carefully consider their composition. Look closely, what can you see? Explore the focal character and his garments, look at the background drapes, what else can you find?  Look around your home and find objects to draw.  Maybe someone at home would like to volunteer to be the subject matter of your artwork! Using whatever and whoever you can find, make your very own artwork inspired by John Kindness’ print.

An exhibition celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Fingal County Council Municipal Art Collection.

Thursday 12 September – Saturday 16 November 2019

Fingal County Council is proud to present this major exhibition curated by Una Sealy RHA, James English RHA, Joshua Sex and Sanja Todorovic. The collection comprises of works by national and international artists, graduates, emerging artists and local artists. Over 200 artworks have been acquired since the collection began in 1994 and it has been continually evolving since with new acquisitions being added when the opportunity and resources present themselves. The collection contains a broad selection of work by artists such as Eva Rothschild, George Potter, John Kindness, Pamela Leonard, Maeve McCarthy, Patrick Scott and Mick Cullen, amongst others.


The curators are all Fingal artists, whose art also features in the collection. They describe their process of selecting work for this exhibition as taking in the physical and natural landscape of Fingal and celebrating local and visiting artists that have arrived to the county through the collection. The official motto of Fingal County Council is Flúirse Talaimh is Mara — the abundance of land and sea which is reflected in some of the artworks featured in the exhibition.
