This year's exhibition includes artwork from Coláiste Pobail Bheanntraí, Mercy Heights Secondary School, Skibbereen, Sacred Heart Secondary School, Clonakilty, and Schull Community College in response to the exhibition Three Days Later by Magnhild Opdøl that was on show at West Cork Arts Centre from 15 November 2013 until 7 January 2014. The students' artwork explores the idea of Aftermath through a variety of drawing techniques, and addresses the aftermath of any number of scenarios. Students' responses include ravaged landscapes, empty buildings, the scene of the crime and the remains of a meal.
The exhibition also includes an installation project created as a collaboration between visual artist and Schools and Youth Coordinator Alison Cronin and a group of Transition Year students from Mercy Heights Secondary School and St Fachtna's De La Salle, Skibbereen. The group worked within the gallery in the run up to the exhibition, exploring the theme of Aftermath in an exhibition space.
The exhibition opened on Friday 7 March 2014 with an event for schools from 2.00pm. The show was officially opened by Kevin Gill from CIT Crawford College of Art and Design.
As part of the Youth Event there are film screenings scheduled, for more information on these please see our Film page.
