Aisling has been announced as one of 50 artists out of 3.5k submissions for this year’s Hang Tough Open Call IG competition. She has been awarded a print publishing contract with Hang Tough Editions. Aisling will collaborate with Hang Tough to produce one limited edition print release for their ‘Hang Tough Winter Print Show’.
The exhibition will take place in Hang Tough’s Dublin City Centre gallery, Hang Tough Contemporary – No. 4 Exchequer St. Dublin 2. It will open on the evening of Thursday December 1st at 6pm. On the night, all prints will be available unframed to be taken away in a tube, or framed. The professional Hang Tough Studio framing team will be onsite to offer live framing for buyers.
Aisling was delighted to be a part of the “Point of Perspective” Show at Artlink, Fort Dunree. The exhibition was a story about the lightness of being through the multifaceted lens of the human experience. The exhibition flows from the sheer awesomeness of the cliffs and seaside landscape, into gallery 1, through the glass hallway (or sacred passageway) and into gallery 2, where the energy and presence of works uplift the curiosity of the viewer to gaze back out into the landscape in a new way.
The exhibition was curated by Lindsay Merlihan, Board member at 126 Gallery, Galway. The artists were encouraged, through the process of art making, to reach the highest point of perspective, allowing the process to take them on a journey, elevating them to a place of revelation.
Aisling was selected to take part in the See Me juried digital catalogue and exhibition, which brought forward images of works from artists across the United States and Europe. The artists represented explored ideas of both what it means to be exposed and controlling what is put forward to be seen.
These artworks present reflections on personal identity through manifestations of physical, psychological, spiritual, metaphors and narratives. The catalogue represents a spectrum of art making in various forms, mediums, and dimensions as wide ranging as the notion of self.
