"The Royal Dublin Society Student Art Awards 2009"

Today is the last day to enjoy the RDS Student Art Awards exhibition 2009. The show is a unique opportunity for Irish Art students to exhibit their work. Furthermore, it is also a great prospect for them to advance their careers through the different awards and scholarships. The new generation of Irish Artist is resourceful and full of talent and Peter Murray’s  “This Land Again” is a worthy winner of the main Taylor Art Award. However, the most stimulating part of the exhibition is the work of the printmakers. Killian Dunne’s “Children who Probably Died in the First World War” and Malwina Ostrowska’s “Leukaemia” etchings are noteworthy due to their excellent treatment of rather obscure subject matter through technical excellence. The RDS Student Art Awards exhibition is travelling first to RUA RED in Tallaght, Dublin 24 and the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal.
