Limerick School of Art & Design, LIT, has once again collaborated with the Crescent Shopping Centre, Limerick to bring a special Christmas pop up gallery to shoppers hoping to buy local, unique presents this Christmas.
The pop up gallery, “LSAD Artists on Display” is situated in the former Monsoon unit and features unique work by LSAD graduates and students across various disciplines of design, including ceramics, fine art, photography, sculpture, and more.
Dean Limerick School of Art and Design and Director of Cultural Engagement LIT, Mike Fitzpatrick said, “We are delighted that the Crescent Shopping Centre has again offered LSAD students and graduates the opportunity to show their wonderful range of artworks in a safe environment at the Crescent Shopping Centre. The shopping gallery was very popular last year with both the public and the artists and thanks to John Davitt Manager of the CSC for reaching out to us again this year.
“The pop up gallery gives us the opportunity to share the skills being developed on a daily basis at LSAD with the general public, and the chance for the discerning art lover and those wishing to support 'Made in Limerick' to find a special piece for themselves or a gift for another.”
This year’s exhibition is being organised by members of the LSAD Students Union and volunteers from the Student Exhibition Society.
LSAD Student Union President Cormac Dillon said “We are hugely proud of the talented LSAD students and graduates and their fantastic work. The “LSAD Artists on Display” was a very successful undertaking last year and we look forward to making it as safe and pleasant experience again this Christmas.”
The “LSAD Artists on Display” is open until December 21, 2020 from 10am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 12noon to 5pm on Saturday.
