On Sunday, 1st of October Dublin Sketchers will sketch at the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland (D09VY63) from 2pm and meet for drinks at 4pm in The Tolka House (D09 VH02).
Sculpture in Context 2023 is the largest sculpture exhibition in Ireland. Showcasing sculpture for over 35 years, this annual event is organised by Sculpture in Context, an artist-led organisation, in association with the Office of Public Works and the National Botanic Gardens. 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. The exhibition runs from Thursday 7th Sept to Fri 13th Oct. Great opportunities to sketch the exhibited Sculptures and many intriguing subjects in the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland.
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! Please bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.
If you would like your sketch to be added to the website, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org 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. If you are
