Square shopping centre. These are the paintings I decided to show, but the easel, table and accrutiments were moved before we opened. I will upload some of the more recent photographs later in the week, including views of the gallery space when all the Artists' work was installed. I will have some of my portrait painting that I am doing as part of the event. One of the other artists is sitting for me, and the public can come in and watch while I paint her sitting in front of some of her own work.
All the workshops and events were thoroughly enjoyed by many participants, and we found a few new members for the forum too. The Square management have asked us to extend the event for a while longer due to the success of both the event and the exhibition, and the management and staff of the shopping centre have given us all the assistance we needed apart from the wonderful space free of charge for the event. The South Dublin County Council Art's office gave us great support with a grant to cover the cost of insuring the event, invites, posters and opening reception and the Mayor kindly opened the event officially.
