The G.A.G. annual drawing competition

The annual drawing competition was reinstated in 2024. Greystones Art Group members were invited to submit a black & white drawing, using pencil, pen or charcoal, but not using any colour. Choice of theme was open. Works were submitted on April 8th, 2024.

Breda Mathews was thrilled to scoop the perpetual trophy with her drawing of a child in charcoal. Second place was taken by Anita D’Arcy and a shared third place went to Adrienne Southern, Evelyn Moorkens and Deirdre McKernan Crosby.

An Irish Spring

In February 2024 the members of the Greystones Art Group were invited to submit a piece of work with their vision of an Irish Spring.
The submission date coincided with a colour mixing workshop given by Sinead Lawless and Sinead was asked to pick her favourite painting from the selection.
Patricia O’Neill was the delighted artist picked, with a wonderful depiction in oil of the lambing season in Ireland. Below you can see Patricia’s and all other wonderful art works.

Dreams and Reality

This theme came from the idea that there is always a connection with the timeless, no matter what is happening in our outer world. We can create our reality in our dreams and express those dreams in paintings. These paintings were created by our members while we were in lockdown in spring 2020.

Flight and Freedom

Following on from the previous theme, it is possible to be free to create in your inner world, even when you are restricted in your outer world. Here are some paintings by our members, depicting freedom. Also created during spring lockdown 2020.

My Favourite Poem

A self-explanatory theme. Members selected their favourite poem and created a painting reflecting their vision about the poem. These paintings were created in 2013.
