Donegal Designer Makers bring HOME exhibition to Derry

As part of Derry City of Culture 2013 the Donegal Designer Makers presents, HOME, an exhibition of craft, applied art and design at the Craft Village (off Shipquay Street) Derry, from Fri  3rd – 30th May 2013.

The official opening will take place Friday 3rd May, 6.30pm – 8.30pm. Refreshments will be served and everyone is welcome.

HOME reflects the work of 18 Artist/Designer/Makers from Donegal and their connection with their home place (Donegal). For some it is their birth place, while others have made it their home. The exhibition explores the different elements of what home is to each maker.

Hannah McGuinness, Creative Director, Donegal Designer Makers says, “Our main connection to each other is our home place Donegal. Whether born here or settled here we have the great fortune of being owned by it and thus feeling part of what is Donegal. Our county has great dramatic beauty, is subject to erratic weather patterns, has a language of its own, is steeped in culture and tradition. All these aspects of our life in Donegal are carried through our lifetime, influencing and inspiring our work and us as people.”
