Some pics from the NGG Gallery exhibition and open mic on Tuesday night in Temple Bar, Dublin. It was a fun night of art, poetry, music, wine and ... water (for me!)

I haven't the energy to write a report but it was great to meet Emerging Writer there, (at last!). Congrats on your piece - it went down very well with everyone.

I hope the NGG make this an annual event and that it grows and grows. All kudos to curator/artist/poet Carol Eakins who got it together and was so nice to deal with over the course of the last few months.

Click on pics to make them bigger if you want. I don't know everyone's name, so sorry there are no labels on the images.

I do know that the frogs one at the top is by Emmett Martin and Ashley Walsh of M2i.foto. I love it! And the second image/collage is my piece.

looks good. So is the gallery basically the ground floor (and/or first floor?) of the temple bar cultural info centre?

Ah that Paul Durcan poem is really fabulous, I'm glad to get a good look at it. EW looks well, she's coming to Dundalk for a workshop in June, as is Noel Monahan.

All the pics look great - you must be tired - mind yourself :)


Yes, PJ, it's the ground floor. Not sure that it was used to best advantage on the night but at least it's a space in town for people to exhibit in, cheaply.

Babs - thank you! She mentioned the workshop. Have fun! I'd say Noel would be a great workshop leader too.

Yes, I'm jacked...zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

It is a totally fantabulous poem and a pretty neat lookin collage too, well done. I don't know why but i always think of Gilbert O'Sullivan when I see that pic of Paul.

Janey would you look at the state of my hair...lovely to meet you WRW. It was a fun evening. Take it easy.


Thanks, TFE. Yes, Paul was definitely channelling Gilb with that look. It makes me want to sing: 'Alone again. Naturally...'

Ew - there's nothing wrong with your hair! You look lovely. I showed my sis the pics and her 1st comment was 'I hate my chin'. Women - what are we like?!
