Polish artist Alexandra Wejchert studied architecture at Warsaw University and art at the Academy of Fine Arts, Warsaw. She lived in Italy and France before moving to Ireland in 1965. Wejchert’s large-scale sculptural works in innovative materials including coloured perspex, plexiglass and neon became emblematic of the new spirit of progress in 1970s Ireland. Wejchert received many major commissions from businesses and institutions including, Irish Life; the Bank of Ireland; University College Dublin, and Trinity College Dublin. She also exhibited extensively nationally and internationally.
24 June 2021: The Hunt Museum, which exhibits one of Ireland’s greatest private collections of Art and Antiquities, has created an exciting new public space for Limerick. Museum in a Garden takes the Hunt Museum outside its walls to create a public urban garden in the heart of Limerick. The concept behind the garden, established as a Museum board priority in 2015, is to break down barriers to culture and art and encourage greater engagement with the community.
The wall is known as 'Crann Saoilse' (2003) or the 'Wall Of Light'.
The UL campus is truly one of the most beautiful university campuses anywhere in the world. Visitors never fail to be impressed by this peaceful green place with its trees, its fountains and the beautiful river Shannon flowing majestically through it all.
My main hobby is Street Photography but I have many other interests including blogging, computers and electronics in general.
Currently I operate a number of websites in order to promote my interests and through my sites I have made available a really large catalog of photographs many of which are available to anyone who wishes to use them.
