When should you start taking children to a contemporary art gallery? I had my two nieces on Saturday for the day aged 3 and 9, both being country children I thought it would be nice to get them to see a bit of city life. First we went to Mo Mowlam childrens play park at Stormont, and with great gusto they threw themselves into every slide and swing. The three year old then wanted to know if we were going to Ikea ? no we were going to a gallery next, not a shop.As we parked down an alley way…Continue
When I was a school in Downpatrick there was a joke that all us children shouted at each other when someone was taking a photograph. "Who do you think you are Bobby Havery?" Bobby Hanvey was the local photographer who worked for the Down Recorder, he was always seen out and about with his camera. I called into the new art centre in Downpatrick this week and their first exhibition is "About faces" a selection from his 70,000 archive of photos taken in the area since the…Continue

Apart from selling some art to raise funds for causes in Africa I am quite "hands on" in that I ask for donations of left over wool to use to crochet patchwork blankets and baby clothes to go there for the needy. I would appreciate any bits of wool to use. I also have a man in Gambia who can fix mobile phones. Hadim will fix any he can or use parts from them to fix others. I can use any donated mobile phones, preferably in working order, to go to Gambia for people who are housebound, ill…Continue

Found this article on: http://www.modchurchunion.org/publications/st/jan2011/2.htm
"Authenticity in art is equivalent to truth in religion. Graffiti, which bears witness to evanescence, is perhaps the most authentic religion of our time.
Graffiti occupies neglected spaces, unused viaducts, derelict buildings, temporary structures. When it appears in a relatively permanent, central, well-used…Continue

I had two favourite subjects at High School: Art and English Literature. I was encouraged in both by good teachers, and wrote poems which appeared in the school's yearly publication of pupils work. That was the root of my inspiration although I loved to study the poems of James Joyce, Alfred Lord Tennyson and all the War Poets when at school. My interest in putting observations into words continued beyone my school days and I submitted poetry to many of the amateur poetry magazines taking…Continue
Having gathered together an art exhibition from many countries and items of interest connected to Africa or inspired by Africa, I set out to be as cross-cultural, cross-community and socially inlcusive as possible in how I ran it, who I involved in it and how they did things.
One of the donating artists, Paula Pereira, found the project so interesting that she said she would like to come to the event. I invited her to stay with me and she flew into Dublin on 11th, travelling to…Continue
