‘Beneath Shadow and Reason’ by Derick Hegarty

By |June 26th, 2012|News, Previous Exhibition|

6th  – 29th September 2012 Derick Hegarty won AFCork exhibition prize at EXXIT, CIT Crawford College of Art and Design  Degree Exhibition 2012 My painting is not politically aware nor does it have a social conscience which is the expectation from much art today. Instead it is rather introspective. It takes elements from the physical world and brings it to a place of imagination and personal experience. Like the expressionists I seek to express emotion more so than physical reality. […]

Explorer l’univers…nos prochains pas

By |July 22nd, 2011|Previous Exhibition|

An exhibition of posters supported by French Embassy in Ireland 19th July-2nd September 2011 From ancient times until now, man has observed the sky, first with the naked eye, and then with ever more powerful instruments. The information gathered was used to build an increasingly accurate and complex representation of our Universe. The classification of stars paved the way for the study of their evolution; astronomy was replaced by astrophysics and cosmology. The current instruments result from international collaborations; cooperation among researchers on key issues will lead to investigations into the formation and dynamics of the Universe. The present exhibition illustrates some of these possibilities. […]
