New exhibition Orientation launch

A new exhibition called Orientation will be officially opening by local entrepreneur and Dragon's Den star Gavin Duffy next Thursday, November 30th at 7.30pm.

Orientation is a celebration and showcase of artists living and working in Drogheda and surrounding areas.

Orientation, curated by Dorothy Smith, suggests a shift in focus and an acknowledgement of the importance of locality. 

Artists included in the exhibition are Els Borghart, Vivienne Byrne, Anthony Collins, Nuala Early,  Leo de Freyne, Laura Gramzow, Brian Hegarty, Raphael Hynes, Kieran McNulty and John Moloney. 

The exhibition is running until March 3rd, and there will be a visual arts workshop programme for Secondary Schools for 5th Year Art Students on the 18th, 25th January and the 1st February. 

Each workshop is limited to 10 students, details below on booking. 

There will also be an open invitation to the public to view the exhibition on February 1st at 8pm, and discuss it afterwards over a tea/coffee. Similar to Theatre Club, it aims to encourage people to talk about and respond to the Visual Arts Programme.
