Vestige is a selected body of work from Louth Craftmark members featuring contemporary craft design and visual art. Taking the word ‘Vestige’ as a starting point, members were asked to explore what trace, imprint or evidence of their practice they expect to leave behind for future generations. Artists include: Grace Brennan, Jane Campbell, Mary Cowan, Orlaith Cullinane, Maureen Finn, Robert Kelly, Michael Kobuladze, Caoimhe McCarthy and Rachel Tinniswood.

The  selection panel was made up of artists Brian Hegarty & Vivienne Byrne, and Droichead Director, Collette Farrell.

Louth Craftmark Network, founded in 2006, is a collective of makers and visual artists based in and around Co Louth. It is an impact driven membership organisation, currently with 57 members, with the potential to increase membership to all those engaged in creative practice in and around Louth. The network has widely exhibited nationally and strives to support makers and artists through access to funding, networking and collaborative projects. The creative disciplines of our membership include ceramics, print, jewellry, textiles, painting, sculpture, woodwork and furniture. All members are engaged working full-time or part-time in their discipline.
