An Táin Arts Centre is delighted to announce the recipient of their inaugural emerging artist residency award as Úna Curley, from 29th June – 17th Sep 2016.
Úna Curley, mixed media artist, grew up in Kerry but is now based in Carrickmacross. She studied at NCAD and graduated with a first class (hons) degree in Textile Art and Artefact. This was the culmination of a long journey of exploring art as a language of expression. Having previously attained a BA (Hons) Mgt from the IMI and an MSc Communication from Queens University, Úna was still curious about the intent or meaning beyond words; in particular, the complexities of stories, concepts, words, thoughts and feelings and the expression thereof.
During her residency with An Táin Arts Centre Úna plans to explore the rich heritage of County Louth for inspiration and developing ideas. Through collaboration and some community involvement she will create new works and will be exhibiting to visitors in August/September.
