Dublin Sketchers Club

Athena Room

June 11 - June 17, 2010


On the 11th of June the Sol Art Gallery on Dawson Street will premiere a special exhibition entitled 'Dublin Sketchers: Drawing a Crowd'. Done in conjunction with the city-wide celebrations for Bloomsday, the exhibition brings together the work of 23 Dublin based artists in a single collection as the Dublin Sketchers group show never before seen works created in a variety of mediums. Running daily from 11th-17th June, the exhibition introduces the work of a wide variety of artists who operate around the Dublin area. The show's theme is inspired by the weekly outings of Dublin Sketchers. Founded in early 2008, Dublin Sketchers has grown to become a significant group of passionate artists based in the capital. Each week, the members visit different locations in the Dublin area including galleries, museums, parks and outdoor spaces. Participating artists provide their own sketchpads, drawing equipment and imaginations but the rest is free. This packed exhibition features some unique work built up over the past two years which is unlikely to be shown under the same roof again. Indeed, the sheer diversity of the work and artists involved will guarantee that there is something which appeals to everyone. Official Opening 6pm-9.30pm on June 11th.
