A fine cast as works of top Irish sculptors showcased

Works of art by celebrated Irish sculptors have gone on display in Belfast city centre to mark the 25th anniversary of the Cast Foundry in Dublin.

Cast 25 is running at the James Wray & Co gallery in James Street South from today until July 19.

The free exhibition features 60 sculptures from some of the most influential names on the Irish art scene.

Sculptors featured include Chris Wilson, Dorothy Cross, Ian Pollock, Rachael Joynt, Kathy Prendergast and John Coll.

The thought-provoking sculptures are priced between £1,000 and £20,000. Gallery director Alan Wray said they are beautiful examples of museum quality works of art at gallery prices.

"Together with Solomon Fine Art we have brought together a collection of artists that reads like a who's who of the sculpture world, but also featuring up and coming talent and works of great interest," Mr Wray said.

"I would advise anyone planning on seeing one exhibition this year, to make it this one.

"It gives students of art, collectors or enthusiastic amateurs an excellent opportunity to come and look at these stunning creations in a city centre location, up close and personal and for free." For further details visit www.jameswray.ie or call 028 9031 3013.
