Pupils of Scoil Mhuire opened the exhibition
The Dock's Open Season exhibition is always a highlight in The Dock's visual art calendar, and a great opportunity for selected artists to show their work in The Dock’s gallery spaces.
Artists at all stages in their artistic careers exhibit in this unique show and the works include painting, drawing, photography and sculpture. The exhibition is always vibrant and eclectic, great to look at and the perfect place to pick a truly original Christmas gift.
Pupils from Scoil Mhuire National School performed Christmas carols at the opening.
As well as the Open Season show, this year The Dock also host two other exhibitions one by the Abbey Community College in Boyle and the second a touring exhibition by Red Bird Youth Collective, a youth arts group based in Galway.
The show by students of Abbey Community College is called The Human Head. For this very interesting show the 5th year students from the school will examine and explore the human head from original Stone Age sculptures, to contemporary zombie movies, to anatomical perfection, to the hyper stylised ambitions of the fashion industry.
Claiming Space is a touring exhibition by Red Bird Youth Collective, a youth arts group based in Galway.
The exhibition continues until January 14, so if you want to take a break from your Christmas shopping do call in for a look and maybe a coffee or tea in the Jury Room Café. Admission is free.
