Sunday 24th January


Well hello there you delightfully talented people! Happy new year and such. Now then, please, please, please put suggestions for next weekend's sketching location in the comments to this post. Me, well quite frankly I'm out of ideas, devoid thereof. I'm tapped. I can't think of a single thing we haven't drawn. Last Sunday in the National Art Gallery I gave a dude directions by showing him previous sketches in my pad. "Take a left there when you see a giant painting that looks something like this..."

So, ehm, yeah, give it some thought and then post the hell out of it :) Remember there are no restrictions so if you have something unusual in mind let us know.

The general guidelines are:
1. Somewhere free.
2. Eh, not too far for Stephen to walk to as he's invariably hung over.

Talk to you soon.
Stephen

IMMA sounds like the best option; people can draw in Heuston as well if the gallery doesn't appeal.

Happy enough going to Kilmainham this Sunday too. Couldn't make the Bleeding Horse unfortunately, did anyone else besides Sally do anything and if so any chance you can post it, would love to see the results.

Also trying to find out whether 15 Usher's Quay is open to the public on a Sunday, I've texted the contact number so will wait and see but maybe we can visit it sometime in the future. It's an interesting old building and they have an art gallery on the ground floor. It is where James Joyce's aunts lived and where he set his famous short story "The Dead" which was also the setting for the film by John Hueston featuring Donal McCann and Angelica Hueston so if you are familiar with the film or short story it is quite an evocative location.

Sounds deadly James. I'll try and stick up some pics tomorrow from the last couple of weeks.

James - that sounds briliant, must look into that!

There is a €5 entry charge to the IMMA Photography in New York Exhibition, it's free for students.

Just so ye know in advance! That is just to that exhibition, there is still the rest of the Gallery to sketch for those who don't care about the photography..

Stephen said...

Hmmm, that somewhat countermands both guidelines :) It's still, however, our most viable option. The Douglas Hyde gallery sounds good also but it's not reopening to the public until Friday 29th. If anyone else has any suggestions please put them up today or early tomorrow.

Thanks :)

OK guys a bit of a coup here - on Sunday Sweeney's pharmacy is reopening by Joycean scholars connected with Usher's Quay house and they suggest that we come there it's a 150 year old apothecary that Joyce mentions in Ulysses and has loads of drawers filled with all sorts of pharmaceutical compounds including arsenic. Who's up for Sweeneys. There's more to the tale too including potentially exhibiting work we do from there...
