Our first photos from Art on the Farm 2010
Our first week in the summer of 2010 has been blessed with beautiful weather. We’ve been sure to take advantage by fishing in the pond for dinner, swimming, tennis and a few bike rides around the block. Manya and Julie even prepared a Summer Solstice celebration with flower wreaths and herb satchels. Everyone spent their first few days working really hard in the studio producing some wonderful perspective drawings and prints in the darkroom.
Our trip to Dublin was packed full of activities, but most still found time to make it to Top Shop and a few vintage clothing stores. With stops at the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the Douglas Hyde Gallery at Trinity College, a walking tour of the significant sites of the 1916 rebellion and a film at the Irish Film Institute we were constantly on the move. During our second day we saw the bronze age collection of gold jewelry at the National Museum. These beautiful artifacts are among the most significant of their kind in Europe. We also had a tour of the annual juried show at the Royal Hibernian Academy where everyone seemed to find something they loved. By the time the day was done everyone was glad to get back to the farm.
The last few days have been spent in the studio starting new assignments and drawing from the figure. It seems that everyone has settled in nicely, ready to take on the new week. Please have a look at our gallery of images by clicking here, and be sure to check back next sunday for more photos.
