Life drawing sessions in Droichead Arts Centre

November 9, 2010

Droichead is delighted to offer a series of 3 evening life drawing sessions in Barlow House. Droichead wants to engage the visual arts community aiming to arise a renewed interest in life drawing which could be further developed when successful.

These are life drawing sessions intended for artists who already have basic drawing skills. The classes do not provide a tutor, they only facilitate the model. They are intended to allow participants to draw a professional life drawing model and to practice their drawing skills. The sessions will focus on giving the participants the opportunity to draw and experiment through their own choice of medium, size and material.

Easels & drawing boards will be provided. Bring your own drawing materials. Tea & biscuits are included in the price.

Practical information

Dates: 17/11; 24/11; 1/12
Time: 7-9pm
Venue: Barlow House
Price: €26 for the 3 sessions; subscription and payment in advance required

Interested? Please ring our box office in Barlow House for more information or to subscribe on 041/9833946.


Until the end – Magnhild Opdøl

October 8, 2010

Droichead is delighted to present its new exhibition ‘Until the end’ by artist Magnhild Opdøl. The opening night is scheduled for Wednesday the 13th of October at 7.30pm. All are welcome.

Magnhild will exhibit a beautiful series of delicate drawings accompanied with some sculptures. The main body of her recent work is an investigation into the nature of death. Everything has its’ time, after death all that remains is documentation or the memory of the person, the place or object. In the past year the work has dealt with the idea of the end as the beginning, giving a new lineage to the images and objects that are created, where the past stops a new story begins.

Curious what you can expect from this exhibition? Have a look at the slide show below, but mainly make your way to the exhibition. The show runs from the 13th of October until the 20th of November.

Keep an eye on this blog for an interview with the artist next week.
