Christmas Art Exhibition in aid of the Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team
Last night saw the formal opening of the special Christmas Art Exhibition in aid of the Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team in the Law Library’ s Distillery Building on church street by David Barniville SC, Chairman of the Bar Council.
Paintings, photographs and kiln formed glass pieces by local and international artists were on display and many of the artists were on hand to discuss their work.
The exhibition was organised by Action Photography’s John Shiels with the aid of and well know mountain runner Ercus Stewart SC. Both Ercus and John as well as AP’s MagsR had a number of pieces on display. Belfast based glass artist Sean Campbell (seancampbell.co.uk)had some of his newer pieces alongside some of Daragh Muldowney’s (dulraphotography.com) “Out of Thin Air” collection. Ukrainian artist Tetyana Tsaryk (www.tsarykozernyy.com) and Lithuanian artist Vladislav Dainovski (www.dainovski.com) presented a larger selection of Oil paintings.
The Dublin/Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team carry out a 24/7 rescue service to those who find themselves lost and or injured in the mountains. It costs on average €50,000 to run our team on a yearly basis. We get a government grant of €14,000 and the rest of the money has to be raised by relying on donations and fund-raising events.
The exhibition runs until the Tuesday 22nd of December in the Law Library Atrium, Distillery building,145 church St. Dublin 7
