Lismore Castle Arts launches Artifice 2021 supported by the Arts Office

Lismore Castle Arts is delighted to present ARTIFICE 2021. Artifice 2021 is kindly supported by the Arts Office, Waterford City and County Council.

Artifice is an annual exhibition which presents works of art created by transition year students from across County Waterford. This year the theme is “Land Art” based upon Lismore Castle Arts’ main exhibition for 2021 by Nancy Holt with A.K. Burns, Matthew Day Jackson, Dennis McNulty, Charlotte Moth and Katie Paterson.

We invited students to explore their relationship with the environment and to express their experience of the lockdown, environmentalism and personal identity. Due to the current restrictions, Artifice 2021 is an online exhibition, presented on Lismore Castle Arts’ website from March 11th:

Over 130 students took part in Artifice 2021, from five schools in County Waterford: Meánscoil San Nioclás (An Rinn), Ard Scoil na nDéise (Dungarvan), Ardscoil na Mara (Tramore), St. Augustine’s College (Dungarvan) and Blackwater Community School (Lismore).

The Lismore Castle Arts Purchase Prize and the Waterford City & Co. Council Purchase Prize will be awarded. The winners will be announced on Lismore Castle Arts Facebook and website after the exhibition opens.

The winners will be announced on Lismore Castle Arts Facebook and website after the exhibition opens.
