I received a lovely letter this morning from Pieta House thanking me for the donation of €3,900 to the cause, raised from the proceeds of my last exhibition in the CHQ.
I was delighted with the response to the exhibition and all the support and encouragement shown to me at the time. I would like to once again thank everybody who came to say hello, bought a picture, a raffle ticket or helped in any way to get it all that together.
Good and all as that event was though, it still felt like it could have gone better. The chaos of the opening day really stung; poor Tex losing a finger and then the whole event being called off due to a gas leak in the area...leaving just one day to display the work.
The good folk over at Fire Printing, where I get all my photos printed, have been incredibly supportive. To make up for the loss of the opening night in the CHQ they have offered me the use of their beautiful exhibition space at the Copperhouse Gallery, just off Camden Street.
The exhibition opens this Thursday. 22nd June from 6-8pm, with a wine reception. Like the event in the CHQ we'll be having a raffle on the night with the chance to win a framed copy of a piece of your choice from the collection. As before all profits will be donated to Pieta House.
Hopefully see you there!
