Update for week of 20 June 2016

Join public vote for Brian Fay's artwork!

Our colleague Brian Fay, artist and head of our Fine Art programme, is one of just ten artists nationally to have a piece of work shortlisted to best represent Ireland in 2015. 

The Irish Times and the Royal Irish Academy have come up with a final short list of five works from literature and five from the visual arts. and they are now asking the public to vote for the piece they feel best reflects Ireland in 2015.

Brian's drawing is called "Vermeer Woman in Blue Reading a Letter 1662-65"  Brian has used a conservator's image of the original, in which the cracks and dust of time are equivalent to time's wrinkles on a human face.
