Sunday 28th February


Once again the week is overtaking us and Sunday looms with looming luminosity. Suggestions please in a comment to this post, not on post cards, no, no, not that, anything but that. If there is somewhere you would like to meet up this Sunday for sketching please suggest it. Even if it's your first time, all ideas are welcome.

Thanks bunches,
Stephen

How about the Botanic Gardens as a follow on to the RHA plant exhib. We would be warm in the Glasshouses and the pub across the road is a nice place for after, as the cafe is usually full!

What about going somewhere new for a change - like the Pearse Museum - it's a beautiful house/museum/art gallery/school, it's a nice warm temperature inside also and just as close to a bar and free.

Yeah, Pearse Museum sounds great.
Botanic Gardens might be nice to return to in the near future too.

Mary said...

Sounds like a good idea James. Just checked the bus. I could get No.18 and then pick up the No.16 on Harold's Cross Road! Save time going into the city.The Museum seems to be at the No.16 bus Terminus!

Pearse Museum sounds great. I have a wedding this Saturday so I definitely won't be back in Dublin on time for sketching.

I hope we can do the Pearse Museum again sometime, perhaps in the Summer.

Hope you all enjoy!

Quick question.. does anyone have any sketches from the Science Gallery sketching trip??

Pat said...

We should also do a return trip to the National Museum at Collins Barracks sometime soon; they have some of the exhibits from the Natural History Museum on display. Should be good subjects for drawing.

I agree, I like the cut of Pearse Museum's gib...

James Moone said...

On a seperate note we might organise a time/ date to visit University Church on Stephens Green sometime soon too - any suggestions datewise, we need to let them know when we might be thinking of going. To get the ball rolling what about three Sundays from now? Sunday March 21st. Other suggestions appreciated.

I'm definitely up for Pearse Museum on Sunday, but would also love a return to Collins Barracks, and Botanical gardens when it's a bit warmer. Don't think the tea rooms are open yet at Pearse, so we'd need to find a pub near by for the meet up. Are we starting 2pm now?

Mary said...

Jessica, the Eden Pub is opposite Marley Park, on Grange Road, up from the Museum, and at a quess it looks like a 10 Min.walk?

Pat said...

I'm pretty sure The Yellow House is the nearest pub to the Pearse Museum.
They do good food too. Are we having a 1pm or 2pm start?

Tracy O'Brien said...

I think 2pm again this week, just to give it a chance and see if it works or not for people. We will revert to 1pm then if it is decided it suits better.

The University Church was my idea, as I visited with college years ago. Would definitely love to go back, March 21st sounds good. Better to nail down a date so that we can confirm it with them and pencil it in. Thanks James!

Tracy O'Brien said...

Oh and another suggestion - I'd love to visit the Print Museum - I know we went about 6months ago but I missed that outing. Could be a good one to revisit if possible!

Sarah Bowie said...

I'm on for Pearse Museum. And 2pm start sounds good to me :)

Stephen said...

It's looking like the Pearse Museum has it for this week. Going once, going twice and sold to the dudeen in the corner with the big post!

James Moone said...

Cool so will suggest a March 21st session in University Church with them. I've no proper sketches from the science gallery session spent too much time just enjoying the exhibits.
