This year is marked by the 150th anniversary of the publication of 'Alice in Wonderland' and Universal Children's Day is celebrated in November every year.
With these two events in mind, the Olivier Cornet Gallery will be presenting a themed group show for Vue 2015 entitled ‘Hopscotch’. The show deals with childhood and childhood memories.
Selected pieces will be accompanied by text written by a group of young writers reacting to the works, in collaboration with Fighting Words, the creative writing centre established by Seán Love and Roddy Doyle in 2009.
The gallery artists participating this year are Annika Berglund, Michelle Byrne, Conrad Frankel, Hugh Cummins, John Fitzsimons, Jordi Fornies, Jason Lowe, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Yanny Petters, Kelly Ratchford, and Adrienne Symes.
