Celebrating the children of Ireland, The Ark presents a portrait exhibition of over 100 drawings by some of Ireland’s best known artists. Part of Right Here Right Now! The Ark's Festival of Children

Drawn from The Ark’s newly commissioned portrait collection, the exhibition places children at the centre of contemporary art-making.

The contributing artists are Brian Maguire, Blaise Smith, Conor Walton, Dorothy Smith, PJ Lynch, Una Sealy, Gabhann Dunne, Sahoko Blake, Cian McLoughlin, Kathy Tynan, Vera Klute and Alison Pilkington. The resulting art works are really beautiful! This exhibition is both powerful and beautiful.

Opening weekend - 14-16 June
The exhibition opens as part of Right Here Right Now! The Ark's Festival of Children - On Sat 15 & Sun 16, drop in to see the exhibition and you might spot one of our portrait artists sketching portraits, or you can try your hand at a self-portrait too in the response area and maybe even add it to the collection!
