gallery at Noon, for anyone who gets there early.The website for the Hugh Lane is www.hughlane.ie
We'll meet at 2pm at the entrance to the Gallery.
If you're new to Dublin Sketchers, you'll spot us easily as we'll be holding
our sketchpads. Don't worry if you're late - just get stuck in with the drawing
We'll meet again at 4pm at the same place to go for coffee.The Hugh Lane coffee shop closes at around
4.30pm, so we might make a short walk to Debenham’s on Henry Street and gather
in their coffee shop on the top floor.
On Sunday 24 Movember the Dublin Sketchers are off to Swenys Chemist on Lincoln Place. This little gem has been operational since the 1850's. Oscar Wilde, James Joyce and Samuel Beckett used to shop here, and it features in Joyce's Ulysses. There's beautiful fixtures and fittings to draw, as well as pharmaceutical and Joycean paraphernalia. Not the warmest building in Dublin, so wrap up warm! The chemist is run by volunteers, so please bring some silver coins to drop into their jar to help pay the rent. We'll be there 2-4pm, then head up the street to Lincoln Inn for a drink and to check out each other's work. At 6pm, there'll be a reading from Finnegans Wake in the chemist if you're up for it!
