The Artists’ Cookbook launches this Friday and you are invited.

This painting “Sweet Ramiro Pepper” 40 x 30 cm by yours truly will feature in the upcoming The Artists’ Cookbook. This coffee table must-have, features a compilation of specially commissioned food related art works and a favourite recipe by each artist. I promise none of the recipes involve oil paint or turps.

The book will launch this Friday the 18th of August 7-9.30 pm. And you are invited. The event is taking place at Airbnb’s Headquarters at Grand Canal Dock in Dublin City. Sign in is at 7pm. The book will raise funds for the charity Syrias Vibes.

“It’s free in and each attendee gets a free copy of the cookbook (worth €25). There will also be complimentary canapes from the Airbnb chefs, free wine and beers courtesy of Rascals Brewing Company.

We will also have a bumper raffle with original artworks from the cookbook (Pato Cassinoni, Cathy Callan, Rikki Van Den Berg), some art prints from Danleo, Senir X and Gintare Venckute), a $250 Airbnb voucher, vouchers for top Dublin restaurants (Coppinger Row, Dublin Pizza Co, Charlotte Quay, Dockyard No. 8, The Fumbally, Chez Max, Diep etc) as well as sweet Syrias Vibes merch.

Raising funds for the doctors and ambulances at Raqqa, Syria and for the Psychology Programme in the Bajed Kandala camp on the Iraqi borde.” – Andy Sweeney, Project Director

There is even an after party in Charlottes Quay afterward. Facebook event link here. See you there

Fun Art Exhibition with a Twist and all for a Good Cause.

I have just popped my donation of a tiny oil painting in the post to Jack and Jill for their “Incognito” fundraiser. However I can’t share an image of it just yet because as the exhibition name suggests, the artists identities remain anonymous until after they are sold.

This fun art initiative, will see 1500 postcard-size pieces of art exhibited at the Solomon Gallery in Dublin on April 2016 and also online. Each piece will sell of fifty euro, with the artists signature revealed after purchase. Have fun guessing who painted which piece. You never know you may pick up a piece by a very well known artist if you have a sharp eye.

All of the proceed are going to Jack & Jill. They have just collected all the art but I’ll leave a link below so you can have a peek when they go online.
