In all the melee and mess of Paddy’s day and its related celebrations, there is one exhibition that you should defo take time from your shamrock-wearing schedule to check out.
Every weekend this month, Gallery Number One on Castle Street, D2, will be showcasing the work of Belgian-born New York-based pop artist Daniel Dens. To sweeten the deal, they’re throwing some cool choons from resident DJ Alex Donald and even a free Innocent smoothie!
The Sophia Loren silkscreen pictured here is in the gallery’s window and has been drawing quite a few punters in. As beautiful as it is, I don’t think I have the €1,200 asking price.
Also on show will be 70s Rock ‘n’ Roll photographer Mick Rock‘s collection of limited edition pics of David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Lou Reed and Debbie Harry, as well as work by Irish-born artist Ciaran Tully who now lives in New York.
You can see some pics from their first smoothie Saturday on their Flickr page.
I really love when art galleries do stuff like this. They are very eager to show that art is something to be enjoyed and appreciated, not just purchased; so don’t be afraid to call in, even if, like me, you’re completely broke!
