Glasgow Residency/Kevin Callaghan

By Artist/Kevin Callaghan


Support an Irish artist and get a great reward.

This residency at The Glasgow Sculpture Studio is a great opportunity for me to further my practice and return to Ireland with a new skill set. It is a 10 week self funded residency, I will be producing new artworks to exhibit in Ireland 2018. The first show is in May in Cork City Hall Atrium to which all funders will get a special invitation.

The series will consist of constructing objects with sheet bronze, and C&C birch paintings. I'll be working with form and colour, you can see similar work on my website www.kevincallaghan.ie. The money raised will directly contribute and pay for materials and the residency fees. 

Glasgow has a great art culture and I have a great rapport with the Scots - I'm sure I'll get on great there for a few months. Glasgow has the similar vibe to Ireland.

I grew up in Donegal as a child of the 80's. At the age of 15 I realised I wanted to pursue art and design as I found a real interest in creating. Taking that interest to a logical step I studied Art for the Leaving Cert. I actually failed Honours Art but was determined enough to get into art and design school in Derry. Ten years later I found myself enrolled in a Masters at the Royal College of Art after finishing a BA at the Crawford College of Art. I also have many shows and many awards under my belt. 

Have a look at the studio in Glasgow where I'm doing the residency, it's very impressive.

I am crowd funding for this project to help me fulfil this exciting opportunity. That's were your help would be amazing. I feel it's an honest way to fund raise and a small amount of money will get you a great piece of art that will be worth more money in the future.

Thank you so much for your support, it really means the world to me.
Please tell your friends, they can also have a piece of art and support an Irish artist.

Support and Irish Artist and Invest

Hi Guys,

Its been a busy year since I moved back from London just over a year ago, I have been artist in resident in The National Sculpture Factory as you know, I have completed a commission for Dublin Airport Authority through Business to Arts and set up the design company www.cond.ie. I have been accepted in the Glasgow Sculpture Studio for a self-funded residency. I am now doing another crowd-fund to help with material and the residency fee's.

If you like what I am doing and fancy a new piecec of my work go to https://fundit.ie/project/glasgow-residencykevin-callaghan (all details are there). You can invest anything from €25+ - €500+ - every little helps!, I have carefully picked great rewards for you.

To bring you up to speed

The residency will commence on the 16th of Jan in the Glasgow Sculpture Studio which has a strong artist community and great facilities. The residency is the beginning of a new series of works that will really build up a language for further investigation into C&C, paintings and sheet bronze objects. I will be exhibiting in Ireland on my return and you will get a special invite these shows.
