31 Years of art on Merrion Square.
Merrion Sq Artists are celebrating 31 years on the square. RTE’s Nationwide featured the art on Merrion Square on Wednesday 17th February 2016.
Since 1985, Merrion Square art has been regular feature in Dublin and on a Sunday morning many people take a romantic stroll around Merrion Square when it becomes an open-air art gallery. The Exhibition runs from 10.00am to 5.00pm.
The Exhibition is organised by Dublin City Council and the Artists are only allowed to exhibit original paintings on Merrion Square so you get to buy original art directly from the artist. No commission is included in the price of the paintings so you will discover that the prices are quite reasonable. You get quality art straight from the hand of the artist. You get to meet the artist, discuss their art and get an insight into the colourful life of the artist. The artists are friendly and are happy to talk about their work with passersby.
What better way than to spend a Sunday than to have a romantic stroll around Merrion Square in a beautiful Georgian setting viewing art. All the family can enjoy art in this historic cultural setting. There is a great variety on display, with of course a great selection of work from traditional to contemporary styles.
If art is your thing, then Merrion Square is the place to go to find that special work of art.
