So did Claire catch you on camera on Friday?  Here are a few pics from the opening of Eight on Friday night.  The opening went really well and a big thank you to all of you who came out…remember the show is running until Febuary 7th so if any of your friends missed there is plenty of time to bring them along. All art work on show is for sale so you might even pick up an amazing Christmas present for somebody who has been very good this year!

8 Exhibition opens this Friday

December 10, 2008

From our first year of operation in 2005, The Dock has presented an open exhibition –Open Season – every December by artists from this region. These exhibitions were major events featuring hundreds of works. At this point, we want to create an opportunity to highlight work by some of these artists whose practice warrants more focused attention.

EIGHT showcases the work of Clive Bright, Majella Clancy, Dearbhail Connon, Billy Moore, Ricardo Marques, Elaine Reynolds, Heidi Wickham and Kate Wilson. While the eight artists all have associations with the region, they were selected by virtue of the diversity of approaches and media they employ, encompassing sculpture, painting, drawing and installation. What they all share is a commitment to quality within their work and a professionalism toward the on-going development of their practice.

The show opens this Friday, as usual with lovely refreshments, at 5.30pm…don’t miss it!
