WELCOME TO THE LEITRIM SCULPTURE CENTRE

Located in the market town of Manorhamilton, North County Leitrim, the Leitrim Sculpture Centre is a major resource for the advancement of skills and knowledge in traditional, contemporary and experimental visual arts.

LSC supports the material practices of artists and furthers creative engagement with the wider contexts of place and community.

Upcoming Exhibition: EXPERIMENTS IN SACR3D GEOMETRY

Artist Exhibiting: Andy Roche

Exhibition Opening: Friday 12th April 2019, 5pm-8pm

Exhibition Statement
Through a series of schematic drawings, Andy Roche has created a body of work based on the practice of sacred geometry. Painted and printed works are projected into 3-dimensional units which are further assembled into various modular forms. By varying the assembly and scale of each modular unit different aspects of complexity are generated; and singular units, whilst rigidly geometric in isolation, create unforeseen changing patterns in groups. This shift from static geometry to fluid abstraction occurs when stable systems breakdown to become something new. In developing the work Roche has consciously upcycled local waste materials such as cardboard evoking the changing uses and adaptation of everyday materials in a more sustainable future.

Artists in Residence 2019                  
Leitrim Sculpture Centre

Open Call for Applications for 2019

Leitrim Sculpture Centre in association with the Arts Council is awarding four Professional Development Residencies during the months of August, September and November 2019. The residency provides artists, and other creative practitioners working in the field of contemporary visual arts, with the space and time for research towards the development of new work.

Specifically the scheme supports those wishing to explore new directions in their practice through experimental approaches to different materials, processes, ideas and/or techniques.

Significantly this is offered to artist-researchers without the pressure of having to produce an exhibition, or specific project outcome-conclusion, during or at the end of the period.

Each residency includes an artist’s stipend of €1,000 and in addition comes with residential accommodation for one month; a private and heated studio with broadband internet; the use of the chosen LSC facilities and basic energy use. Period of residency is for a min of 4 weeks.

Deadline for applications:            1st       MAY 2019
Notification by:                                15th     MAY 2019

For more information and guidelines on how to apply to both of these residency schemes, please see our website and download the Guidelines at:
