Visit 2008 – Dublin artists open their studios

Dreaming of smoking gitanes in a garrett while working on your latest masterpiece? Or simply a nosy nellie who likes a good snoop? Either way, this Saturday and Sunday (19-20 April) check out ‘Visit 2008‘, a chance to peek inside the studios of Dublin-based artists:

Offering a snapshot of artists working across a wide range of media including printmaking, painting, drawing, sculpture, glassmaking, ceramics, video, film, photography, installation and conceptual art, VISIT 2008 celebrates the vibrancy of Dublin’s visual art scene. Throughout the city, artists’ studios are dotted and clustered in unusual settings: faded Georgian buildings, renovated stables, urban warehouses, an old mill, a hidden gem above a car salesroom, dormant council flats, an old firestation and a state of the art studio complex.

With walking tours on Saturday and a full bus tour on Sunday, it’ll be a great chance to see what folks are getting up to these days…
