As part of our An Artistic Eye Series we asked Jesse Jones: how did she become an artist? What is the best thing about being an artist? What do they do all day?
Cruinniú na nÓg 2022
An Artistic Eye
The Douglas Hyde Gallery is delighted to take part in Cruinniú na nÓg, a day of free creativity for children and young people, taking place this year on Saturday 11 June, 2022.
How do you become an artist?
What’s the best thing about being an artist?
What do you do all day?
In this series of videos, these questions and more are asked of visual artists Jesse Jones, Niamh O’Malley, and Eimear Walshe.
Working across sculpture, photography, film, and installation, each of the artists will share their unique take on how, and when, they decided to become an artist, how their work has developed, what being an artist means to them, and the things that they are excited about.
Artists present us with new perspectives on the world we live in. Explore the exciting ideas behind our programmes, hear more from the artists we work with and discover new ways of engaging with art.
