We have been delighted with the response to our exhibition which opened 4 July with the new season of exhibitions at VISUAL Carlow.
Celebrating our ten years of working together, The Possibilities of Place exhibition has been an exciting means to share our work, and in an incredible venue.
Below are some photos from the opening and if you missed it, you can listen again to the review on RTE Arena by Cristin Leach in conversation with Sean Rocks.
Annabel Konig was also interviewed at Visual about the 9 Stones Artists exhibition by the Art in Ireland TV crew:
We have also published a catalogue to accompany the exhibition, with a foreword from Jeremy Hill (curator of the former Norman Gallery) and an essay by curator Cliodhna Shaffrey. You can purchase the catalogue from Visual or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The exhibition continues until Friday 16 October, do hope you can drop in to see it.
Great to see the 9 Stones so well represented at Vue this year.

Anthony Lyttle is Eigse’s 2012 selected ’059′ artist
Anthony Lyttle will create an immersive space within the gallery by making a series of large scale drawings and inter-related smaller works on paper. Central to these drawings is the physical process of making, which involves the endless repetition of the same mark and the ensuing rhythmic energy of repetitive action.
As the drawings evolve, a shadow image forms and assumes a visual influence of the picture plane, resulting in a play of balance between the dominant and the recessive. Obscuring and camouflaging becomes the preoccupation in building a density of marks on the surface of the delicate paper.
Anthony Lyttle was born in Kenya, spending his childhood in Kenya and Ethiopia before moving to Ireland in his teenage years. He studied Fine Art at the National College of Art and Design Dublin and he did his MA in Fine Art Painting at the Byam Shaw, Central St Martins, University of the Arts, London. His recent exhibitions include ‘The white mark’ the Cross Gallery (Dublin) 2011 and ‘Through the Back Door’ Kunstraum (Liechtenstein) 2010. He is currently living in Killedmond in Co Carlow near Mt Leinster. For more info see www.anthonylyttle.com
This exhibition is curated by Denis Roche.
