Over 300 People…

The exhibition is over and we are in the throes of summer. How did we get from April to July?

Honestly, it’s been a blur.

For me the show was, simply put, awesome. Not awesome in the too common way one can use it, but genuinely awe-some.

In all, over 300 people came through the doors during our 15 day show!

The Art Books did well.

Two of the pieces sold…so far!

We want to thank everyone who came to see the exhibition and those of you who watched from afar. Thank you! It was such a memorable experience! One I know I will not forget. Ever.

In the coming weeks I want to share more about some of the things I learned doing the show and the process it took to get there.

I will also be posting the art that is still available for sale. (If you haven’t seen it already, it’s pretty wonderful stuff!)

In the in between time I am still recovering from a crazy few months, working on some writing and other projects, taking care of day to day life stuff, and of course, prepping for the next project!

For now, have a look at beauties (They are all still available for sale. Use the contact form under “contact us” to get in touch if you are interested.)

Photos are here…..

I’ve just posted loads of photos over on the Gallery page. Hope you’ll go have a look.

It’s taking me awhile to get things posted (oral surgery!) but things are coming and will continue to come.

For now, enjoy the photos. It was a spectacular opening night! One I will remember for a long time to come.

Some of the original artworks are still available for purchase, so if something catches your eye use the contact form to get in touch. I will also be posting those details soon so keep an eye out.

Enjoy!

How You Are A Part Of All This

Art isn’t just something you look at.

It’s multi-sensory; participatory.

It’s a conversation.

The first conversation happened between me and words, then between those words and the artists; now it’s between you and the art. Even if you can’t be at the opening, you can still be a part of this conversation and make it an ongoing one. One it is meant to be!

If you watch the video from here please do click the LINK above and go have a look at the indiegogo site. There are loads of really fun rewards you get for donating and being a part of this conversation!

Things like: The art book from the show (which you can deconstruct and reconstruct!), postcard prints, print sets, even original art or your own reconstructed poem! Do have a look!

cropped-cropped-1798950_10153899987305228_1004436503_o.jpgLast weekend I met up with Anna, the street artist and screen printer in our show. She was doing up a wall at the Bernard Shaw Pub in Dublin 2 to advertise our exhibition. It was a great time. People from all walks of life came up to say hello, a bus driver going by gave his approval with a thumbs up, and there was more than one photo taken by people we didn’t even  know. Anna worked so hard to design, prep and then create this piece. It gave me a new appreciation for Street Art. I’m excited to see the rest of her piece when the exhibition opens!

These are just some of the conversations we are having at Coversations|Reconstructed. We hope you will join in with us in this next phase. Even if you can’t be at the show you can still be a part of it. More information is available at our Indiegogo page.
