UCC Art Collection:
Selected Works

Aideen Barry, Basil Blackshaw, Patrick Collins, Carol Anne Connolly, Cassandra Eustace, Mark Kent, Leanne McDonagh, Peter Nash, Sarah O’Brien, Shane O’Driscoll, Emma O’Hara, Ciara Roche, Paul Seawright, Pádraig Spillane, Dominic Turner

In recent years, the University College Cork Art Collection has expanded through commissions related to education and curatorial projects. This work continued through the pandemic as can be seen in Cassandra Eustace's partnership with The Glen Senior community group and the New Light project which presented works on billboards during the nationwide lockdown in June. 

With donor support, we have been able to acquire two new bodies of work from Irish artists who actively addressed the context of the pandemic restrictions in their practice over the last few months. Aideen Barry's Monocopsis Drawings and Ciara Roche's Study paintings provide two very different insights into the enormous changes experienced by society since the advent of COVID 19. 

We are also delighted to showcase key pieces from the UCC Art Collection such as paintings by Basil Blackshaw and Patrick Collins which are usually displayed in private offices or conference rooms.
