An exhibition of artworks curated by Sharon Murphy, first launched in Draíocht in Blanchardstown in March of this year. The exhibition is part of a series particularly aimed at children and young people which explores a specific visual art discipline, its materials, processes and varied manifestations. MAKing Art: PAINTing celebrates different approaches to the use of paint, to the act of painting, and to the painting as finished artwork. It consists of two complementary groups of work. The Round and Back Galleries will feature paintings by Susan Connolly, Bridget Flannery, Geraldine O’Neill and Liz Rackard. The remaining spaces will show paintings from the Collection of the Arts Council featuring eight works some of which have been recently purchased and are being shown here publicly only for the second time. The artists are: Diana Copperwhite; Jacinta Feeney; Damien Flood; Richard Gorman; Mark Joyce and Paul Mosse.
