THE windows of Brown Thomas, famous for their innovate creations, are currently helping promote the work of six Limerick contemporary artists.

Titled Art & Style, the idea is to promote the work of emerging visual artists and the reaction from the public has been very complimentary.

Artists featuring in the exhibition include sculptor Aaron Lawless, who is co-director of Faber Studios. His work uses the urban environment as a point of research in which to engage with the public, aesthetics and the usefulness of resources.

Painter Emmet Kierans has exhibited extensively in Ireland and internationally since graduating from the Limerick School of Art and Design. Printmaker Vivienne Quinn’s installation uses many forms of mixed media including screen-print, fabric, found objects, etching, glitter and paint.

Other artists participating in Art & Style are celebrated painter Gillian Kenny, painter and photographer Gerry Davis and Claire Byrne whose installation will undoubtedly engage passers by on Limerick’s O’Connell Street.

The curated window exhibition brings together a broad collection of original work representing mediums such as painting, sculpture and photography.
