This portrait exhibition of over 100 drawings by some of Ireland’s best-known artists is a celebration of children.
The exhibition is Part of Right Here Right Now! Festival of Children.
Drawn from The Ark’s newly commissioned portrait collection, the exhibition places children at the centre of contemporary art-making.
The contributing artists are Brian Maguire, Blaise Smith, Conor Walton, Dorothy Smith, PJ Lynch, Una Sealy, Gabhann Dunne, Sahoko Blake, Cian McLoughlin, Kathy Tynan, Vera Klute, and Alison Pilkington. The resulting art works are really beautiful, and the exhibition is a powerful one.
Why not drop in over the opening weekend of 13th-16th June and see the artist in-situ sketching portraits, or try your hand at a self portrait of your own in the response area? You can even display it, too, if you like.
