Kerry County Council is inviting artists to express their interest in being part of the Kerry Visual Artists’ Showcase. The showcase is a professionally curated annual exhibition, for qualified artists, working across all media and genres within visual arts and who are from, or living in Kerry.

It recognises local talent and provides exposure for visual artists and it opens on Friday, September 18, Culture Night, at the exhibition space in Government Buildings, Killarney.

This year the showcase will be selected by Catherine Fehily, Head of the Crawford College of Art & Design in Cork. Depending on submissions, artists for next year might also be selected.

Application forms can be found at www.kerrycoco.ie/arts/arts-forms/ and are only accepted by emailing arts@kerrycoco.ie. The deadline for receipt of applications is 4pm on Friday, March 6.

The showcase is supported through funding from Kerry County Council and The Arts Council.
