An exciting lineup of internationally acclaimed Irish artists tells us how they make their work. Do they have routines, rituals, a favourite tool? Do they have talismans? Where do they work? For how long each day? We will be exploring these and other questions in the salon and would love to hear about your own routines, rituals etc. Why not bring along a tool or talisman and share with everyone its impact on your work?
The Wicklow Artists Salon is an artist-run event which explores important themes affecting artists and cultural practitioners. A friendly, inclusive space, each salon consists of a moderated discussion with invited guest artists which then opens into conversations with attendees. It aims to seed learning, interactions and perhaps collaborations among participants. The programme is curated by visual artist Joanna Kidney and writer Philip St John. Crucially, it is supported by Wicklow County Arts Office, Mermaid Arts Centre and The Courthouse, Tinahely.
