On Sunday 18th June, Dublin Sketchers are meeting in and around the Oliver Cornet Gallery, 3 Great Denmark Street, Dublin 1.
It is customary at this time of year for us to attend a Bloomsday Festival event. This year, some people you may know from Dublin Sketchers are contributing their work
to an exhibition entitled “There's a touch of the artist about old Bloom” which runs from 16th – 25th June at the Oliver Cornet Gallery.
As a special treat on Sunday there will be a recitation by renowned Joycean scholar David Norris at 2.30pm in the Gallery.
The Gallery at 2pm is our starting point, but feel free to trace the footsteps of Bloom around North Great Georges Street and Frederick Street to soak up some of the Bloomsday atmosphere.
If you can’t find any sketchers at the beginning don’t worry … and if you’re late you won’t be the only one. It’s Sunday afternoon and we’re not famous for our punctuality. Just get started and keep your eyes open for others.
At 4pm, we’ll meet for coffee in The Old Music Shop in North Frederick Street.
Dublin Sketchers is FREE – just bring your own materials.
Hope to see you there.
PS: The official opening of the exhibition takes place Friday 16 June at 7pm with guest speaker John McCourt. All welcome. Best of luck to Marie-Helene, Jessica, james, Pat, Nina, Balazs, Aideen, Mary, Mauro, Leo and everyone involved in the exhibition.
