CRUX – A Dialogue in Metal

A Metalwork Exhibition With Gunvor Anhøj, Michael Calnan, Moss Gaynor, John Hogan and Jane Murtagh.

glór in association with The Ennis Book Club Festival 2017 present an exhibition of work by five artist metalworkers, entitled CRUX – A Dialogue in Metal. CRUX features work from the leading artist metalworkers working in Ireland today: Gunvor Anhøj, Michael Calnan, Moss Gaynor, John Hogan and Jane Murtagh.

These five artist metalsmith’s have come together through a shared passion for their material - metal. In an era steeped in technology, meet five artisans who have their hearts and hands firmly engaged in the world of the physical and raw. They forge, etch, draw and open out metal into 3 dimensional and 2 dimensional works, combining contemporary practices with ancient techniques.

This exhibition will illustrate the diversity of metal and showcase its myriad possibilities. From large scale welded metal constructions to delicate, highly finished objects - the sculptures portray the material and the makers behind it, revealing their stories through the dynamism of metal in a way that will challenge the viewer’s notions of the material.

CRUX will open with The Ennis Book Club Festival on Friday 3 March at 5.30pm.

A guided tour of the exhibition and an Artists’ Talk, facilitated by John Tynan of The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland will take place on Saturday 4 March at 11.45am. Free of charge and all welcome.
