Art on the Farm 2011 :: Session 1 :: Dublin

There are two excursions during each Art on the Farm session. Each group goes to Dublin for an overnight trip during their first week of camp, then we'll go to a different destination during the second week, depending on the session: Galway & the Aran Islands, The Ring of Kerry, Cork & Cape Clear Island. Here are a few photos from our trip to Dublin last week....

We went on a walking tour, led by Lorcan Collins, co-author of The Easter Rising: A Guide to Dublin in 1916. This is in St. Stephen's Green, at the top of Grafton Street.

Our fearless leaders Rosie (left) and Frank (right). Zsofia (middle) is also a Visiting Artist this summer.

We went to the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and saw work by Barry Cooke, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. And we met with resident artist John Beattie in his studio:

Then we walked across town to the Ormund Studios: a visual arts initiative...founded by a group of 2009 graduates as a self-managed, centrally situated, affordable working space for emerging visual artists. The space comprises of artists studios and an project space which are spread over two floors of a georgian building.

We saw video work by Jackie Gray and Alan James Burns.

There are a bunch more photos from Session 1 :: Week 1 here.
