IMMA has invited internationally renowned artist Dorothy Cross to select an exhibition of work from the Collections of IMMA, Crawford Art Gallery, National Gallery of Ireland and the National Museum of Ireland. The resulting exhibition;Trove, will showcase the extraordinary depth of the National Collections in one unique and very subjective presentation. This is the first time that the National Collections have worked together in this way; presenting a combination of objects and artworks as one single exhibition. Thus Trove represents a unique opportunity for people to see works from both our art and object based National Collections together for the first time, presenting these works in a new and fascinating light. By the inclusion of works rarely seen by the public, Trove also celebrates and rediscovers many of the hidden treasures of our National Collections, revealing much about our collective identity through the objects we have chosen to collect.

John Short: New Works
19 Mar 2015 - 18 Apr 2015
Short received a BA degree at the Edinburgh School of Art and an MA from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London and began his career as an illustrator where his work was in much demand from many diverse publications including Vogue, Harpers & Queen, The Irish Times, The Sunday Independent, The Guardian and The Sunday Times. Now based in Dalkey in south County Dublin, he divides his time solely between his teaching (John is a senior lecturer in Drawing & Image Making in the School of Art & Design in DIT) and his own painting. He is inspired by people, their activities and the way they behave – “It is fascinating’, he says, “to just sit and watch people, or, in fact, to watch people watching other people, and it’s that kind of observation that I bring to my painting”.
