Theo and Vivienne Waddington have organised and sponsored an important exhibition of work by Jack B Yeats which runs from 9th September to the 14th October at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Trinity College.
The exhibition includes many works which have not been seen in public for a long number of years, in fact some have never been seen before in public. The opening proved that the title of the exhibition was apt, it was definately a gathering 'Amongst friends'. The opening was conducted by Dr John Hegarty, President of Trinity College who is hosting the exhibition and also by Mr Nicholas Robinson who is the most wonderful and entertaining speaker. As for the exhibits...what can I say except that if you do nothing else this year...PLEASE GO TO SEE THIS EXHIBITION...the catalogue is a work of art in itself. The exhibition being curated by Bruce Arnold, Yvonne Scott and Theo Waddington. If you get a chance to speak to Theo do so, his enthusism for the whole subject of art is an infection that is worth catching, not to mention that he is one of the most knowledgeable art dealers you will ever have the pleasure of meeting.
