Research shows that most people will have at least three careers during their lifetime. This means developing new skills and knowledge, often in unexpected areas. During September Gallery 20ten in Lombard Street hosts an exhibition of sculptures made by people setting out in such new directions.

The show called ‘Earth, Wood and Fire’ , includes pieces made in glazed and unglazed ceramics, wood, metal and even resin. Most of the artists had previous careers such as Electrician, Home-maker, Musician or Carpet Layer. The show highlights the great creative potential that exists in so-called ‘ordinary people’.

A remarkably diverse range of ideas and styles have emerged from the artists’ skilled hands.

Another unusual aspect of the show is that it includes three works donated by artist Gerry Walshe.

All proceeds from the sale of these pieces will go to Focus Ireland and the Hope Foundation. So come along to Gallery 20ten and admire the amazing works created by these emerging talents.

The exhibition is open 1-5pm Wednesday to Saturday (inclusive) until September 23rd, 2017. It forms part of Gallery 20ten’s Community Interaction programme.

The artworks on display have mainly been created by members of the Traditional Skills Community Employment Scheme in Waterford’s Johnstown Industrial Estate. The scheme focuses on three broad areas: Woodworking, Ceramics and Boat Building. Participants learn by sharing their skills and working with skilled craftspeople. They also undertake QQI certified courses. Under tutor Bobby Harris members have successfully completed QQI level 5 courses such as Sculpture and Ceramics. They have learned Boat Building from Michael Dunne. Waterford-based Sculptor Conor Rush .has also taught them Woodcarving .

Scheme Supervisor Kay Sinnot Browne says that “We try to maintain an atmosphere where all sorts of people can explore new skills and develop their creativity.”
