The 2017 Enniskerry Christmas Art Exhibition is coming soon !
After a number of great exhibitions this year in the Schoolhouse Gallery we will be ending 2017 on a high with the annual Schoolhouse for art Christmas Exhibition.
This year the Schoolhouse for Art will be in the heart of the action in Enniskerry village, the Village Christmas lights as well as the lights on the village Christmas tree by the clock tower will be turned on during the exhibition and we have it on good authority that a certain man in red will also be in the village.
For those of you who have not had the opportunity to visit us and our lovely gallery space yet, the Schoolhouse Gallery had a transformation last summer into a versatile and dynamic art space and we have been delighted to welcome some amazing new artists from all over to teach in the School and exhibit in the gallery and we are looking forward to more exhibitions in 2018 and celebrating our beautiful building and its 200 year anniversary.
This year our Christmas exhibition will launch on Friday 1st of December from 7pm with some festive music, mulled wine and nibbles. We will then open over the weekend from 12pm, Saturday 2nd until 5pm and Sunday 3rd until 7pm.
