Dublin’s The Doorway Gallery is continuing its series of weekly online exhibitions: Getting to know you takes advantage of the extra time currently afforded us to get to know the Gallery’s artists and their lifestyles better, and by showing their works in the making the artists’ studios, giving the viewer an idea of the journey that the artwork makes before it hits the gallery setting.
Additonally, a live questions & answers event on the gallery’s social media platforms (see below) allows the viewer to ask the artist about their work, which will be available for viewing and purchase online – in some cases with a promise of special pricing for the event. The Gallery is also posting videos and additional online content including the chance to visualise the art on your walls via a downloadable app.
The series kicked off on 4th May with painter Dave West, and is continuing from 3rd Aug with painter Jack Hickey, who will be guesting at the Gallery’s Facebook Live evening at 6pm on Thursday 6th Aug. Other artists due during Aug are Ken Browne and Ian Holman and Jack McNulty.
New videos are added week-on-week as the rota of artists changes.
