Hi all,
This week we will be visiting IMMA at the RHA Kilmainham, the main galleries are not open there due to renovations but the New Gallery building is showing an exhibition of Cubism.
This exhibition features early Irish practicioners Mainie Jellett, Evie Hone, Mary Swanzy and other masters of European Modernism ,
including Picasso so it should be an eye opener.
We can meet outside on the steps of the New Gallery building at 2pm. If the weather isn't too cold there are always the grounds to draw outside.
The downstairs cafe is still in operation so we will meet down there at 4pm for a coffee and sketchbook exchange and chat.
See you there : )
