Ode to Boogie Woogie’ (2015) acrylic, corrugated cardboard and wood; 36cm x 28cm x 5cm
Over the past number of years, when Andrew Sweeney from the SCOOP Foundation has invited me to take part in the next art auction, i’ve always been delighted to be a part of it; but this year’s annual SCOOP Art Auction & Exhibition is extra special…
The Scoop Foundation has invited 33 of Ireland’s most loved artists to provide a creative recipe, and to provide an equally creative artwork to illustrate it. The result? -a truly unique cook AND art book, showcasing creative talents and tastes in Ireland today!
The 33 artworks from the Cook Book will be on display in the Third Space cafe in Smithfield from the 10th of Sept until the 30th of Sept . On the 30th of September they will be sold at an exciting live auction, along with 65 other selected artworks that are on show at The Lighthouse Cinema, both in Smithfield. A great night out and, most importantly, it’s for a brilliant cause.
