East Wall Seniors Art on display at Five Lamps Art Festival


As part of the Five Lamps Art Festival new work by East Wall seniors is on display all this week , at the Marino College of Further Education , Connolly House , North Strand . The exhibition is open from 9am -5pm until 6th April.

 Well worth seeing , the work represents another ‘first of its kind’ that East Wall locals are involved in. The National Gallery of Ireland was given a philanthropic donation to work with older people in the community. Their first project was in East Wall , working with Nascadh CDP .020304

The project coincided with the National Gallery opening up a new education space. As a result , the Seniors from our community got to be the first to exhibit in this new space, and also got the meet the Director of the National Gallery. The group were very fortunate to work with the incredibly talented Elaine Leader an up and coming artist, who works from the Black Church Print Studios in Temple Bar.


The works in this exhibition were described as  creative and showing enormous talent. In eight short weeks the locals involved showed that they can contend with the best.


Another triumph for East Wall.
