North-West Promotions are taking 50 artists on a tour of Ireland and the North starting this November 11th-13th in Letterkenny. 35 artists are committed so there are spaces for another 15.
“We held the Donegal Art Festival back in August and had 50 artists and crafters exhibiting their work together for two days and an evening. It was a success I’m glad to say and everybody sold something as well as got commissions and students.The idea of this exhibition was to engage the public with the artists directly – this was possible because all the artists stayed with their work for the duration. The visitors loved the opportunity to talk to the artists and I believe we sold well because of this. Stephen Bennett sold a painting of €4,500 within the first 20 minutes of opening time!” – Terrie Burton.
All exhibitions have a cover charge of €150 and there is no commission. Good room rates have been negotiated for artists at each hotel, as well as a good discount on food and beverages.
