Culture Night 2011 - Live Painting Demonstration by Padraig McCaul

Last weekend's demonstration for the Nutgrove Arts Fest was really enjoyable (left). It was the closest thing to being on stage again with the Harvest Ministers. But without the music and the adoring fans :)

Next friday, september 23rd , is Culture Night and after a quick glance through the program of events for Dublin on the night it's amazing to see how quickly and how big it has grown in the space of a few years.

I'll be joining some of the other artists from the Doorway Gallery - including Roisin O'Farrell who has a brilliant solo exhibition running in the gallery at the moment - in giving a a live painting demonstrations on the night - in the gallery window! You can get all the details on the gallery website at www.thedoorwaygallery.com

Here's a short video clip from last year's culture night, which was spent painting in the window of the Bad Art Gallery. Expect more of the same on friday! The painting that you can see me working on in the video - The Quay - is now available to view in the Doorway Gallery.


  1. Harvest Minsters.. that explains your strong presence in a crowd! Thanks for the mention. Looking forward to all the craic tomorrow night

  2. thanks Roisin! But I think that may be more to do with the fact that I'm usually taller than everyone else :)
