Following their presentation at St Carthage Cathedral in Lismore, Ireland in May-June 2024, eight prominent Irish ceramicists - Isobel Egan, Sinead Fagan, Jane Jermyn, Ann McBride, Marcus O’Mahony, Eileen Singleton, Kathleen Standen & Bernadette Tuite – will be exhibiting in the company of their Greek colleagues - Ilias Christopoulos, Mirka Drapaniotou, Manos Kalamenios, Haroula Koropouli, Iosifina Kosma, Ifigenia Tsirou, Giorgos Vavatsis - in Paxos from 5 July to 18 August 2024.


The same artists will also be exhibiting at the Courthouse Arts Centre in Tinahely, Ireland in August 2024. The project for these three exhibitions - bringing together contemporary Greek and Irish ceramicists in a dynamic creative dialogue - was initiated last summer in an exhibition held in Paxos for the fifth edition of the annual Irish festival of Paxos – Irish Wings, 2023: “Irish and Greek Ceramic Art in Paxos” (Old Schoolhouse, Loggos, 14 July – 8 August 2023). Since 2017 the Irish Wings festival, under the direction of Kathryn Baird, has brought important Irish contemporary musicians, poets, writers and artists to Paxos in events and exhibitions attended every year by an enthusiastic international audience and by the Irish Ambassador to Greece.


This is a unique opportunity for a Greek and international audience of Paxos to discover the variety in form, texture, colour, technique and expressivity of contemporary Irish and Greek ceramics.


Curated by Chris Boïcos and Jane Jermyn.
