Plein Eire Dublin & DPSC joint Paint Out

Last Sat, Apr 9, saw the Plein Eire season really kick off with a joint outing with Plein Eire Dublin group and Dublin Painting & Sketching Club, members and anyboby who wanted to join in to get a taste of what painting and sketching out of doors is all about. The event co-incided with DPSC's annual exhibition being held in Dun Laoire Town Hall, so the venue was the local beauty spot of Sandycove; Joyce's Tower, Forty Foot etc. The weather held up, following the previous few days sunshine,… Read on...

Plein Eire - Dublin ?

Anyone like to join a Plien Eire group for the greater Dublin area - where the greatest concentration of the population in Ireland is - or do you think that need is catered for by the Dublin Sketchers Group?

Hi John, I will be in Ireland from July 25 to September 16. From the AITO I will be exploring Ireland to paint with other groups. Hoping to meet up with your group.

Yes, can be there for 10am.  But best to text when you arrive as I live only 2 mins away.  The car park is just opposite the church so 30 mins will be more than enough time to see the windows. Then I can show the way to Ardgillan about 10 mins by car from there.  See you Saturday morning. Alsion

Seasons Greetings John.  I am involved in voluntary work at the hospital under the Arts & Health programme.  There was an Open Day advertised resulting in registration, selection and vetting processes.  Perhaps keep an eye on the hospital website for further information.  Hope this helps. 

In haste!

Hi John,

If you think Dublin Plein Eire would like to join forces with Boyne Valley in Balbriggan next Saturday you are all more than welcome.  The more the merrier, so here is hoping for clear skies.

PS. I reckon the sans serif bold condensed you were speaking of is Gerry Hegarty's page style selection? Could I suggest you roll this week's postponed Dub Plein Eire paint-out to join with the Boyne Valley group at Balbriggan next weekend instead if its not too far?

Hi John.

Thanks for the comments on the site which I'll look into. You should be able to edit the details of the Dublin Group as you are the initiator. However, I have made the changes you asked about and if you want to change the wording or whatever don't hesitate to get in touch.

The Discussion Forum on Dub PE is set to just cycle the latest 5 postings (headings only) and if there are out of date ones in view, its just because it is an unused facility. It can be discontinued if you prefer, or set to show only Group Admin discussions. The amount of text shown and the number of postings made visible can be varied. I guess it is generally for more pressing matters than the general 'Comment Wall'.

Anyway, I deleted the out-of-date exhibition notice and have left the facility there for now if you and members want to use it. Unfortunately, as site Admin. I don't see quite what you see on-screen, but I think you should have editorial control over the Dub PE area if you look for the 'edit' function. But as I say, if not, just ask and its easily fixed.
