Art in the Open, Ireland, Exhibition Opening and Awards Presentation, Greenacres Gallery

Monday afternoon was our exhibition at Greenacres Gallery. One hundred eighty artists exhibited up to 3 pieces each. And every piece was lovely. It was really an emotional experience to see the quantity and quality of the work created the past week. Also to see the work done by the people you had shared meals and drinks with during these days. As they say here, it was grand.

The Mayor of Wexford welcomed everyone, all the hard working volunteers were credited, and award winners were announced (you'd know if I won anything). It was an excellent show; all the artists were thrilled to be a part of it.

Here were my 3 ...

Tomorrow, for those of us who did not depart after the exhibition, there will be one final paint-out and a picnic. Tomorrow also I check out of my hotel and into a more reasonable B&B around the corner.

  1. Isn't it wonderful how the Irish turn out for art shows!? They really appreciate artists of all types. Nice to see that some work wasn't framed, that they used the gallery wrap canvases. Congrats on a great show at Greenacres.
