Merrion Square Open Air Art Gallery

Merrion Square Open Air Art Gallery takes place every Sunday. It is organised by Dublin City Council and almost 200 artists sell their own work there. They hang their paintings on the railings on three sides (West, North and East) of Merrion Square.
This is Dublin’s only free all year open-air weekend art exhibition. It is the perfect place to pick up quality art. Every year new artists are allowed to exhibit so the work and artists keep changing. If you have an eye for art, you could well come away with your very own treasure.
For the last 26 years Merrion Square art has been regular feature in Dublin and on a Sunday afternoon. The Exhibition runs from 10.00am to 6.00pm and the Artists are only allowed to exhibit original paintings 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.There is a great variety on display, with of course a great selection of work from traditional to contemporary styles.

Little Green Street Gallery

On a earlier blog (Thu Mar 15) I showed a building (top left) from the Market's area of Dublin with some colourful graffiti and asked "Is it Art?". Caite from N.J. in the United States who blogs under "a little shore breeze" posted in reply: " I would say if it was the artist's property..fine. But does one have the 'right' to damage another's property because of your 'art'? I think not."
This troubled me, and eventually, today I got back there to discover that this old building is in fact an Art Gallery, and the murals and graffiti are intentional.
The Little Green Street Gallery has a fascinating exhibition running at the moment based on Tintin the fictional character in The Adventures of Tintin, the series of classic Belgian comic books written and illustrated by Hergé.
