An exhibition by Eva McCauley
August 24th – September 15th 2012
McCauley is a Canadian artist who habitually spends time in rural Ireland making work. A painter and printmaker, McCauley has digressed into new media to produce large scale ghostly printed textile hangings as well as other mixed media work for IN/VISIBLE. The Cill Rialaig Artist Retreat in Co. Kerry is a location McCauley returns to time and time again; it’s atmosphere and history has informed this body of work. She has again been invited to be artist-in-residence there in June 2013.
McCauley studied visual art at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, receiving an O.C.A.D. diploma in drawing & painting (1983), a B.F.A. from University of Guelph (1994) and a M.F.A. from University of Waterloo (1996). She is an adjunct professor in the Fine Art Department at the University of Waterloo.
Live traditional music with renowned musicians, fiddler Maeve Donnelly & uilleann piper Máire Ní Ghráda, will be performed at the opening reception.
