About the Exhibition

Pop Up Artists are a group of local Fingal Artists who have come together to hold Art Exhibitions in the community of Fingal, with the proceeds going to charitable and fundraising projects within the community. Visit the Pop Up Artists Facebook page.

This August 27th - 29th (during the nationwide Heritage Week), they are planning a major event to raise funds for the restoration of Saint Columba's Church, Swords. Saint Columba's is a heritage building and a historic site and the people of Swords cannot afford to lose this integral part of their heritage.

Local artists Pauline Langan and Jean Lowndes felt compelled to help in some way to save this beautiful, historic building, itself a work of art, having used Saint Columba's Church for the past seven years as part of Heritage Week to hold an Art Exhibition.

Artists from all over Fingal have come together and an Art Exhibition is planned with over 40 artists. To make this year extra special, they are running a children's art competition for the first time and children of the local community and all over Fingal are invited to submit their entries.

Pop Up artists are so impressed with the artistic ability of the young people of Fingal and are keen to encourage them to create their own works of art to put on display and for entry into a competition.

There is no particular theme to the Children's Exhibition, but it being Heritage Week, wouldn't it be nice to rediscover some of the Heritage sites throughout Fingal through the eyes of future generations? Please encourage your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbours, siblings - EVERYONE - to have a go.

The exhibition will be held in The Old Borough National School, Swords. The opening night is Thursday 27th of August 2015 at 7.30pm. And we invite everyone in the community to attend. Admission is free but all donations to the fund will be gratefully accepted.

Viewing will then continue on Friday 28th of August 2015 from 11am until 8pm. With the judging and awarding of the Children's Prizes to take place between 2.30 - 3pm that day.

It will then continue on Saturday 29th August from 11 until 5pm, when a raffle will take place.

Donations and sponsors are also welcome to assist with advertising costs. And indeed any raffle prizes are also welcome.

The works of art will be on sale for the duration of the exhibition and a percentage of every sale will be donated to the Saint Columba's restoration fund. Raffle tickets will also be on sale throughout the course of the three days and the Help Us Make History team will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about the restoration fund.

Admission to the event is FREE but all donations - regardless of size - are welcome.
