Temple Bar Gallery + Studios announces six new project studio members for the coming year. These six artists will take up their tenancy at TBG+S at various times throughout 2015 and will maintain their studios in the TBG+S building for 12 months. The new member artists were awarded their subsidised studios following an open submission application process, which took place in October 2014.
The six selected artists are Ella De Burca, Amanda Ralph, Maria McKinney, Ramon Kassam, Sibyl Montague and Maggie Madden.
"We are delighted to announce the new project studio recipients for the upcoming year. This is a really strong group of artists who are exhibiting regularly in Ireland and have contributed a huge amount already throughout the course of their careers. The calibre of artists in Ireland is very impressive and we as an institution are fortunate to be able to work with the best artists in the country. We look forward to welcoming Maggie, Ella, Amanda, Ramon, Maria and Sibyl into our community of 30 artists who work in our building in the heart of Temple Bar, Dublin’s Cultural Quarter."
Clíodhna Shaffrey, Director of TBG+S
