Graduating GMIT artists show their talent in Metamorphosis exhibition

Another year has gone by and Galway, city of singers and painters that it is, has produced another generation of artists eager to show their work to the world.

Metamorphosis, an exciting exhibition of work by eleven graduating artists from GMIT’s MA in Creative Practice, opens to the public in GMIT’s Centre for Creative Arts and Media in Cluain Mhuire this Friday.

Artist Michael Minnis will formally open the show which demonstrates the varied skills and creative viewpoints of the graduating artists.

The work they have created for Metamorphosis includes everything ranging from performance to photography using augmented reality, and from paint and print to new form journalism.

Celine Curtin, Head of Department says: “The MA in Creative Practice endeavours to engage students in a range of creative disciplines through dynamic discourse, exchange of ideas and transformative learning.”

“In addition to this exhibition here in the Centre for Creative Arts & Media, works are also on show in Engage Studios, Salthill and in NUIG.”

“The exhibition is the culmination of twelve months’ work by the students who are due to graduate in October.”

The launch of Metamorphosis on Friday, 20 September, will coincide with Culture Night which features a wide variety of artistic events locally and nationally.

Once kicked off the exhibition will remain open to the public for free from 9am each day for one week.
