Eye-Conic Photo Exhibition

A ground-breaking photo exhibition is launching on Monday 20th August at the Teach Bán Art Gallery in Drumcliff.

Titled “Eye-Conic”, the exhibition features the work of a group of photography students from the Mayo Sligo Leitrim ETB (MSLETB). The students successfully completed QQI examinations in Digital Photography at varying levels, with the entire group achieving unprecedented top marks.

The energy and enthusiasm of the students made a deep impression on the group’s tutor Peter Wilcock, of the internationally renowned Redback Photography firm, who commented “their creativity and appetite for knowledge of the Process of Photography astounded me every time I came into contact with them, I looked forward to our weekly meetings as a chance to rejuvenate my own enthusiasm simply by being in close proximity to this red hot core of energy and creativity”.

The exhibition reflects the diversity of the students’ passions, with works ranging from “traditional” shots to the wildly creative and abstract, but all the work has been executed to the highest standards of technique and detail. As well as a comprehensive selection of mounted photos, the exhibition will also feature other works in electronic format, together with the material submitted by the students as part of their QQI requirements.

“Eye-Conic” will be officially opened by Mary Mc Donagh, Public Arts Officer with Sligo County Council, at 6.00 pm on Monday 20th August at the Teach Bán Art Gallery. The Exhibition runs from Monday 20th to Sat 25th – 11am to 6pm, and entry is free.
