For Culture Night my studio (along with my co-Contact Studioers) opened to the public, and slightly tidied up for safe public access. On view and in process at the moment were some ‘Seasonal Variations’ paintings on the ground, along with a few finished pieces, and a preview of ‘Mathilda’s Tale’. ‘Mathilda’s Tale’ is predominantly a series of fine pen sketches concerning a step-sister of Mindy&Mandy (see Cats’ Tales post below), and concerns the ongoing tensions between an Askeaton (Co. Limerick) Blackbird, and a Thomondgate Cat. Ourselves and our 300 or so guests had a great night, with much-needed funds raised through ourPostcard&Affordable Art Sale, and as always, some photo’s from the night will follow.
Also, as part of (Faber Studios) Kevin O’Keefe’s project in the Bellwether show in the Church Gallery, Clare St., Limerick, myself and Pamela Dunne from the Limerick Printmakers played some music inspired by the spirit of Limerick inter-studio cooperation – and an upholstered electric guitar between 6pm and 7.30pm. It is possible to be in 2 places at once!!
