Sunday 4th October

Hey there arty folk,

This weekend lets meet up in Dun Laoghaire. While I realise we've been there a couple of times recently, there's a specific exhibition on.
Anaesthetic Intervention is an art intervention supported and part funded by Dún Laoghaire/ Rathdown Arts Office taking place for 10 days from Oct 1st to Oct 10th where contemporary artworks will be placed in shop fronts and prominent sites of business and commercial premises in Dún Laoghaire.

So basically there'll be cool stuff on display to the general public all around the town/village/'burb. Here's a map of where the different arty thingies will be.

Let's meet at one o'clock outside the main exit of the Dun Laoghaire dart station and go from there. If you're new just look for the bunch of odd looking people clutching sketchpads and the like.

We'll head for Weirs pub afterward for coffee/pint/food and various discussions. Please note that this may change on the whim of whomever shows up, so try and be at the station for one :) If you do arrive late head to one of the exhibition sites and talk to random strangers until you find one of us. The commonly accepted passphrase is, "Eh, you eh, you with the Dublin sketchers?" to which the standard reply is "hmmmm? The what? Oh right, sorry, yeah, them. I'm one of them. Yeah, sketchy Dubliners. Uhuh. Hi". See? Easy.

Have a good day this Sunday Folks. Went to the W.C.Exhibition today and it is well worth a visit. I found some brilliant sketches which combined water colour with pen and ink!

I'll be back as of next weekend Veronika! Has been a topsy turvy Summer, but it'll be nice to get back into the sketching side instead of just the blogging!! See you there!

The watercolour gallery was really good. There's a great diversity in the work on display. Definitely worth a visit.

Glad you enjoyed it Stephen. It is on until 1pm next Sat.10 Oct.
I watched a demo last Sat. by Ivor Coburn, it was an amazing 4' long, botanical watercolour!
