Alison Cronin

Visual Artist and Arts Facilitator

Since graduating from BA Visual Art with DIT on Sherkin Island in 2010 my art practice has continued to develop, working primarily with drawing, cut paper, and installation. I have been involved in group exhibitions across the country, including a site specific project in Kilkenny, Idionumina, two shows with the Mart group, based in Rathmines, and a three person show back on Sherkin Island this summer.

I recently co-founded an artists studio in Skibbereen to allow myself the space to develop my work further, and am currently working towards a two person show in Co. Clare for early 2015. Alongside this, I work as Schools and Youth Coordinator at West Cork Arts Centre, which involves the organisation and delivery of a wide range of projects with schools, and young people, and the curation of two annual exhibitions resulting from these programmes.
