Sculpture at the Botanic Gardens

11 September 2017 14:15:39


On Saturday afternoon we visited the Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin where the annual Sculpture Exhibition is in full swing. If you look up the OPW web site you will find the times for guided tours of the exhibition. There are some quirky items used in the display this year and it is always worth a visit if you find yourself in the area. I did like the synchronised swimmers in the pond.

Will upload an album later. I use an iPad and email the photos to a laptop to post the photos, hence the delay.

As you say, some of them are quirky, but some are lovely. I like the dinosaurs!

Im all for quirky-but not in MY garden!!!! I really liked a numberof them that intertwining one is my favourite but I liked the two Boyos with Mr, Tobin between them-a far finer man! Many thanks ,I did enjoy it and may not get there.

Peter, what do you think of Paddy in the Kaleidoscope? I know it looks like a bad taken photo.

I did wonder about that particular photo, Mary. 

Hmmmm, very different to the usual type of sculptures usually exhibited.

Loved your album Mary.  The swimmers and the floral submarine were my favourites and Paddy looks just as good as usual upside down!  I'm lucky to live in Dublin and always try to get to the Botanical Gardens while the sculpture exhibition is on.  The gardens are a fine exhibition space for our talented sculptors; a former work colleague of mine exhibited a piece there a few years ago.

I would love to see them. How long is it going on for?

Until the middle of October, Moya and it is always worth a visit.
