Gerardine Wisdom is an artist who works in rushwork basketry, also in ceramics and mosaic murals. Uniquely in Ireland, she has taken this ancient craft of rushwork and turned it into a new Irish Art Form in sculpture. The mosaic murals are created using handmade ceramic pieces and broken ceramic tiles.

Gerardine has passion for rushes and is inspired by the natural beauty she sees around her in the Irish landscape where she lives, especially in its lake and shores of the Shannon.

Gerardine has over 20 years experience working with schools, community groups and festivals.

I am a native of Cahir, Co. Tipperary. Although I live in Wexford, I 'm always delighted to return to Tipperary to facilitate writing projects. I have published six collections of poetry, most recently 'Our House, Delirious' published by Revival Press, Limerick. Recent awards (2022) include The Ballybunion Poetry Prize, the Michael Mullen Prize and placings in the Frances Browne competition and the Francis Ledwidge. My writing largely addresses the memory of 'the people, places and events' I experienced growing up in south Tipperary.

Brigid Teehan’s art practice involves working with people, places and situations where she is operating at various levels of creative direction, organisational structure; curation and production. 

Her strategy has been to test how an artist might exist in spheres of life outside the art world such as businesses, workplaces, schools, mental health settings, communities of interest, and empty buildings. At the same time attempting to bring that work back to the contemporary art context.
