Opportunity to Join the Board of Directors of The Tyrone Guthrie Centre

Opportunity to Join the Board of Directors of The Tyrone Guthrie Centre

Would you like to support the work of The Tyrone Guthrie Centre as a member of our Board of Directors?  For 40 years The Tyrone Guthrie Centre has given artists time, space, facilities, collegiate support, and understanding to do their creative work at Annaghmakerrig. Board members are trustees of the Centre who oversee its governance and operation, and ensure that it has the ways and means to carry out Sir Tyrone Guthrie's vision. The past year has been profoundly testing for The Tyrone Guthrie Centre as a registered charity and a business enterprise. Financial health and fundraising are high priorities for the Centre now. If you can offer the skills and expertise in the areas of finance and fundraising to help us as we reopen and renew the Centre, we will be particularly keen to hear from you. We have an immediate vacancy on our Board of Directors for someone with these skills. To learn more about Board of Director membership for our immediate vacancy, or if you are interested in putting your name forward for our panel of potential Board and Committee members, please signal your interest in confidence by emailing our Resident Director and Company Secretary, Dr Éimear O'Connor, at director@tyroneguthrie.ie                                                                                                                   read more

Announcement: Two New Bursaries in the Visual Arts: The Anita Young Bursaries for Mid-Career Artists

Announcement: Two New Bursaries in the Visual Arts: The Anita Young Bursaries for Mid-Career Artists

Watercolour artist, Anita Young, was born in Mansfield, England, and trained at the Central School of Art and Design in London. She taught for sixteen years in London, and exhibited regularly in art centres and galleries in England, Ireland, and later in New Zealand. A regular visitor to the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Anita Young left us a generous bequest in her will. Her bequest contained stipulations that we have carried out according to her instructions, and as a result, we at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre are delighted to announce the arrival of two new bursaries for mid-career painters.    In association with the RUA, Belfast, we are proud to announce the Anita Young Bursary for a mid-career painter, the winner of which will be chosen from among all mid-career painters exhibiting in the RUA annual exhibition (members, invited artists, and selected artists). The bursary offers a two week residency, with the use of a studio, at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, with travel costs awarded by the RUA. The Anita Young Bursary for a Mid-Career Painter in Association with the Tyrone Guthrie Centre and the RUA will run for five years. The first winner will be selected at the annual RUA exhibition in 2021, and will take up their bursary in 2022.   In association the RHA, Dublin, we are proud to announce the Anita Young Bursary for a mid-career painter, the winner of which will be chosen from among all those exhibiting in the annual RHA exhibition (members, invited artists, and selected artists). The bursary offers two weeks, with the use of a studio, at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, with travel costs awarded by the RHA. The Anita Young Bursary for a Mid-Career Painter in Association with the Tyrone Guthrie Centre and the RHA will run for five years. The first winner will be selected at the annual RHA exhibition in 2021, and will take up their bursary in 2022.   The painting illustrating this announcement is The Allihies, by Anita Young, watercolour on paper.
