Russborough House Hosts Car Boot Art Fair

Roll up, roll up! Sign up now for early access to this unmissable art sale at Russborough House …

Taking place on Sunday September 8, Russborough House will host a Car Boot Art Fair which will include works from some of Ireland’s most impressive contemporary artists.

Sponsored by Chapters bookstore, participating artists will include Gabhann Dunne, Gillian Lawler, Ann Quinn, Sean Molloy, Joe Dunne RHA, Margaret Corcoran, and Helen Blake, while Blaise Smith RHA, Una Sealy and PJ Lynch will all offer 30 minute portrait sketches on the day for €100.

Readers of THE GLOSS will receive early access at 10.30am before gates open to the general public at 11am. Simply book your ticket (from €10) through this link: www.eventbrite.com.

The event is both a fundraiser for conservation projects at Russborough and a way to ‘give back’ to contemporary artists who are so often asked to contribute to charity fundraisers for free. This event allows them to generate some much needed income as well as operating as an audience development project for contemporary art, taking it out of the museum and gallery and into the community in an accessible format – the car boot sale.
