The Pleasure List: Culture vultures in frame for little artistic treasures
Some people wear their heart on their sleeve but here at the Pleasure List we like to wear our art on our sleeve!
OK – even we'll admit that was a pretty lowbrow opener for a highbrow institution like the Talbot Gallery in Dublin's Talbot St, which has teamed up with four highly regarded print artists to produce Irish Fine Art Collectables, a limited edition collection of prints on badges by Irish artists Caroline Patten and Robert Russell, London-born Dublin-based Nickie Hayden and South African artist Katherine Van Uytrecht. These little treasures are original works of art and make the perfect Christmas gift for the culture vulture in your life. Starting with a single hand-printed badge from €9.50, the range includes sets of four badges framed for €65 or the deluxe gift set with framed miniature hand-printed edition accompanied by a poem by Kathy Enders (€115). The Irish Fine Art Collectables are available to purchase from IMMA, Chester Beatty Library, The National Gallery of Ireland and at www.irishfineartcollectables.blogspot.ie and www.talbotgallery.com
