About Peoples Art

At least once a year I try to visit the Peoples art exhibition and sale at St. Stephen’s Green in Dublin , this is a great day for an art lover as its one of the biggest open air art displays in Europe.

The images posted here are all taken on a very warm summers afternoon and I got lots of great images of the artists and their work along with getting to see some great painting and drawings from Landscapes to portraits.

Official information

People’s Art Dublin is a voluntary, part time, non profit making group, brought together by Dublin City Council to promote the visual arts to the public of Dublin. Each year after expenses are paid, donations are made to various charities.

The co-operation and assistance of Dublin City Council and The Office of Public Works ( OPW ) , which makes these events possible, is gratefully acknowledged by all the artists involved.

Any artist can apply to exhibit but there are some rules that apply, it costs each artist just €25.

  2. What a pity to have missed you while you were photographing the event. I normally get to the People’s Art but couldn’t make it in June, however, hope to exhibit for the next event in July. Glad you enjoyed it anyway 🙂
