Inductive Probability is a survey of work by Paul Gregg.
His work has occurred fleetingly, and been installed permanently in cities and towns throughout Ireland, Europe and the U.S. This survey cannot retrieve the artist's original installations. Instead, it represents his practice through tests, documentation, and technically unsparing assemblies.
For instance, Inductive Probability includes a decommissioned rocket, photographs lit by explosions from magnesium mortar charges, and a model for a glass planet Earth. The exhibition covers twenty years' worth of Paul Gregg's perennially sited machines. More

The Butler Gallery is delighted to present outawack, an exhibition by the USA based Irish artist, Helen O'Leary.
Helen O'Leary is a highly inventive artist who has been exhibiting her work for over twenty years. This is her first exhibition in Ireland since 2006. O'Leary's new work delves into her own history as a painter, with both subject matter and raw material rooted in the ruins and failures of her studio. By taking apart canvases, wooden stretchers, panels and frames she turns the conventions of painting literally inside out. Humorous and enigmatic, these fragments that make a new whole, bare their histories as well-worn objects while at the same time are infused with newfound energy and dynamism. More

But with some basic guidelines and practice, artists are, for the majority of purposes well able to photograph their own paintings, drawings, etc with the digital compact or SLR camera that they already own. For most of the situations in which you present images of your work whether: submitting proposals, portfolios of work for submission to galleries, websites, catalogues, press releases for magazines and newspapers, this workshop will assist you in a methodical step-by-step process to obtain the best possible results with your digital compact camera or digital SLR.

"The Bauhaus had used the gothic cathedral as the image of what the school was meant to be: a place where artisans of every field, whether glassmakers or stonecutters or painters or architects, worked together, anonymously, to serve a purpose higher than themselves."
The Space of Art is a one day symposium exploring art, craft and architecture through themes and ideas present in the work and life of Josef Albers. Albers was a member of the original Bauhaus school in Germany which emphasised the connection between artists, architects and craftspeople. More
