ODYSSEY, an all-encompassing show by graduates of Limerick School of Art and Design, will go on display this Saturday in their Clare Street campus.

The LSAD graduate show of 2013 features the work of final year graduates from painting, sculpture and combined media, printmaking and contemporary practice, fashion, visual communications, ceramics, and art and design teaching.

Odyssey, which “represents the epic journey these students have taken over the last four years” from their initial studies to artists in their own right, is the culmination of a long list of dramatic shows that have run city-wide this year, and will be opened at 3pm this Saturday, June 1 by the newly appointed artistic director of Limerick City of Culture 2014, Karl Wallace.

The exhibition will continue to run until June 8 at 4.30pm, but will be closed on June 3.

Entry is free and all visitors are welcome.
