'Furtive Tears # Pass', is a solo exhibition of new work by artist Níamh McCann, opening on Friday 22 September 2017, 6pm. As an artist, McCann’s work places the viewer within a matrix of thematic contexts from the built environment to fictional scenarios and historical coincidences. Her visioning is made manifest in works of drawing, painting and multi-medium sculptures which are often presented as part of a larger installation work and are often site-responsive.
In May 2016, the School of Fine Art, National College of Art and Design, Dublin (NCAD) awarded McCann the inaugural NCAD Fine Art Studio Residency 2016/2017. Níamh was based in the Annex building, postgraduate hub at the NCAD until September 2017 making significant contributions to the MFA Fine Art programme and as a member of the College community. As part of this exhibition presentation, writer and critic Chris Fite-Wassilak, invited by the artist and commissioned by the Gallery, has written an adjoining essay in response to this iteration of McCann's work at this time. 

The 'Furtive Tears # Pass' exhibition continues Monday 25 September — Monday 16 October 2017, open 1pm — 5pm, closed weekends. Anne Kelly Curator. Please find more artist information at this link
