The People’s Art 2009, Dublin

The Green June 09

The People’s Art Exhibition

takes place this weekend 26th, 27th and 28th June around the railings of St. Stephens Green, Dublin.

This event is organised by a voluntary group in co-operation with Dublin City Council and takes place over three weekends in the year.  Other dates  to watch out for – 21st – 23rd August and 18th – 20th September.

This always promises to be a lively and colourful event and creates a great ambience in the city, similar to that in Merrion Square (which takes place every Sunday throughout the year).

You will find me located at space number 51/52 on the East side.

Why not drop by for a visit.

On behalf of The ART WALK Art Fair

I have great pleasure in inviting you to the official opening of

The Art Walk Art Fair at  Liffey Boardwalk on Sunday, 7th June, 2009 at 2pm.

Mary Davis, Chairwoman of the Taskforce for Active Citizenship and former CEO of Special Olympics Ireland will be guest of honour and will take part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the event.

This summer, the Liffey Boardwalk between the Ha’penny Bridge and O’Connell Bridge will be transformed into The ART WALK, an open air art fair, organised by the North Dublin Student & Artists League.

 I hope to see you there!
