Sun 25th September at TEFL Square near La Touche Bridge over the Grand Canal

 

LA TOUCHE BRIDGE | DUBLIN STREET IMAGES

On Sunday 25th September, Dublin Sketchers will sketch at TEFL Square near La Touche Bridge over the Grand Canal from 2pm and meet for drinks at 4pm at Blackbird pub, 82 - 84 Rathmines Road Lower.

What is unusual about this Sunday is that an Austrian TV company are coming to film Dublin Sketchers. It's possible that they might want to chat with you about sketching and film you and your sketches. If you traveled and sketched along the Great Journey South, do please bring your sketches / sketch books. Obviously, it's fine if you don't want to be filmed, just say so.


If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink from 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.


If you would like your sketch to be added to the website, email it to dublinsketchers@gmail.com or post it to the Dublin Sketchers Social WhatsApp group if you are on that. Please edit your image so that it is low res and properly oriented for posting to the website.


Hope to see you there!

18th September 2022- National Botanic Gardens

On Sunday 18th September, Dublin Sketchers will sketch at the National Botanic Gardens from 2pm and meet for drinks at 4pm at the Tolka House (9a Glasnevin Hill, Glasnevin, Dublin 9, D09 VH02). 

The ‘Sculpture in Context’ annual exhibition is on at the moment:


The National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin will host the 36th annual Sculpture in Context Exhibition free to the public from 1st September to  7th October inclusive. Bringing together the work of more than 120 artists using a wide range of media, these works of art represent the rich, diverse character of Irish and International contemporary sculpture. From the smallest, most intricate ceramic works to stone sculptures of monumental scale, visitors to the exhibition will be enriched by the experience of viewing such inspiring works in one location.


Exhibiting artists for 2022 include: Michael Quane RHA, Jen Donnery, Martin O’Keefe, Petr Holecek, Tracey McVerry and Fiona Smith. Sculpture in Context is a pivotal event in the Irish arts calendar and is the longest-running and largest sculpture exhibition in the country. It attracts a large public and critical audience and is the cultural highlight of the National Botanic Gardens calendar. Sculpture receives a spectacular presentation throughout 50 acres of beautifully-landscaped grounds with artworks displayed in the most unexpected and surprising places. Visitors can enjoy smaller sculptures exhibited in the glasshouses and in the gallery located above the restaurant in the Visitors’ Centre. 


For more information, see the website of the Botanic Gardens and Sculpture in Context.


If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink from 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

11th September 2022- National Museum of Archeology

On Sunday 11th September, Dublin Sketchers will sketch at the National Museum of Archeology located on Kildare Street from 2pm and meet for drinks at 4pm at the Starbucks nearby (Stephen Court, GF1, St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2, D02 N960). 

Admission is free.


From Prehistoric Ireland to Ancient Egypt, the museum gathers important archaeological artefacts dating from 7000 BC up to the 20th century. The collection includes beautiful Celtic and Viking objects. Opened on 29 August 1890, the building was designed by Thomas Newenham Deane and his son, Thomas Manly Deane, in the Victorian Palladian style. The columns around the entrance and the domed rotunda are made from Irish marble and bear influence from both 18th century neoclassical design and the Pantheon in Rome. The stone on the exterior is mostly Leinster granite, with the columns formed from sandstone excavated at Mountcharles, County Donegal.
