New Gallery Number 6, Dublin 2

Gallery Number 6

They say there’s safety in numbers. At Gallery No 6, located off Grafton Street, you will definitely feel safe. Situated in the prime shopping location of Anne St. South the new gallery, which opened last October, features an impressive number of twenty-seven artists.

Apart from the wide variety of art displayed, your eye is bound to catch the fantastic ceramic sculpture which sits proudly in the middle of the gallery. Suzanne Brady is an emerging visual artist from south Dublin. Suzanne has recently finished three years studying sculpture and ceramics at Connolly House. Her piece “Angst” shows a naked body of an arched woman.  Breasts out and arms stretched offers a vision of tension. Yet it singularly gives a soothing impression on the eye and mind.

More prominent Irish painters such as Alan Kenny or Louise Mansfield will no doubt catch the interest of the wealthier viewers.

At the end of the gallery, a range of Roisin Duffy’s work is also available. She claims to be a visual story teller and every piece does exactly that. Accompanied by a poem, every of her figurative artworks will bring either humour, imagination or colour to your world if not all in one. The gallery also has a small selection of her Slate Sculptures.

In addition to established names the policy of Number 6 is to encourage emerging Irish Artists, providing them with the opportunity to display and sell their works.

If 6 was not your lucky number, it should hopefully be the case now. The gallery run by Sorcha, Tom and Ann boasts in having miniatures, limited edition prints, etchings, reproduction note cards and book of paintings. So before your number is up, come and visit by the numbers Gallery number 6.

Where: 6 Anne St. South, Dublin 2.

When: Tuesday to Saturday. 11.30am – 5.30pm.
