Artists’ Notes 2017

Posted · Add Comment

As usual it has been a productive year at Shankill Castle particularly for the artists in residence. Elizabeth Cope launched a monograph of her work ‘Seduced by the smell of paint’ alongside an exhibition in The Oriel Gallery in Dublin.

Last spring Kramies, Dutch-American artist came to Shankill Castle to write a new EP. In October “I wish I missed you” was launched along the video which was filmed on location.

Have a listen below and read the article by Atwood Magazine to see Kramies inspiration for the song.

Staying at Shankill Castle is an artist dream come true. Inspiration is everywhere, from the beautiful landscape, the quiet surroundings, and the warm hospitality from the lovely Cope family, it’s the perfect place to create. I’m so happy with my experience there and I was able to get so much finished! I will always hold my Shankill Castle Residency close to my heart and I look forward to returning someday soon to continue writing!”
