Art of Many Nations: this year’s exhibition is bigger than ever with twelve participating artists of differing nationalities – Polish, Irish, Spanish, Lithuanian-Polish, Polish-English and the former Republic of Yugoslavia. One of the exciting new exhibitors is Ernada Husic who specializes in print and etching and is a fulltime degree student in her final year at NCAD. Her subjects featuring the process of metamorphosis are based on myth and fantasy.
