QSS is delighted to be welcoming a selection of 2023 graduates from Belfast School of Art to exhibit in our gallery as part of Emergence VII.

Now in its seventh year our annual ‘Emergence’ exhibition provides a valuable and professional platform for recent graduates at a transitional stage in their career.

The work was selected from the Belfast School of Art Degree Show, June 2023 and we are thrilled to welcome the selected graduates into the gallery.

A panel of four QSS studio holders (Alacoque Davey, Clare French, Gerry Devlin and Karl Hagan) and an independent curator (Francesca Biondi – Gallery 545) selected the participating artists. This year they are: Anya Nicholl, Aubrey McCrystal, Ciara Caldwell, Ciaran Dallat, Connor Scullion, Eimhear Atkinson, Eiméar Harkin, Kevin McCourt, Lydia Bell, Margaret Kelly, Michael Doherty, Mollie Browne, Moya Clements, Patricia Finlay and Sally McGaughey.

Collectively the selected works demonstrate the diverse range of media explored at the Belfast School of Art.
