23/06/2021 – The weather is so far smiling on our exhibition at Rathmines, with lovely sunny days and beautiful lake scenes. Today we had a group of pastellists out enjoying the winter sunshine and having a chat with local art lovers. Tomorrow the Rathmines Theatre will come alive with classes, demonstrations and more paintings on display right through until Sunday – with the exhibition still on in the Boiler Room just behind. This is a great location and is sure to have something to interest everyone. You can check our brochure in earlier post for the full itinerary.
