Roscommon Arts Centre is delighted to announce Castlerea born artist Siobhan O’Connor as this years recipient of the RVAF award. Selected by Oonagh Young, director of the Oonagh Young Gallery, Siobhan will show work both here in Roscommon in June and with Oonagh Young in September.
Siobhan graduated from Dublin Institution of Technology in 2017. She has always been fascinated with technical drawing and the construction of architectural structures in building and shaping our landscape. In June 2016 she was awarded the Fire station Sculpture graduate award which granted her a studio (from September-December 2016) to create and investigate sculptural work. She was also recently shortlisted for the Visual Arts Award 2016 and selected to exhibit in the RDS along with 12 other artists in October 2016.
