'Goblin Market: Irish New Contemporary Art Book Launch and Exhibition'

Alexa from White Lady Art mailed me this press release recently (below) for the newly opened gallery's first book launch. If you haven't been to any parties in art galleries, you're missing out and I suggest you give it a try. The gallery is on the quays in Temple Bar.

Launch party 6pm Saturday 1st December
Exhibition of artwork from the book's artists for two weeks: 1.12.12 - 15.12.12.
BYOB - drinks for early birds
Goblin Market is the first publication from White Lady Art Books, featuring work from 35 of Ireland's finest New Contemporary artists. These artists are working and exhibiting in Ireland, and their artwork will be displayed in the White Lady Art gallery for two weeks.

The 35 artists who are showcased in the book work in a variety of styles that can be placed under the banner of New Contemporary art: there are urban artists, pop surrealists, outsider, folk surrealists, body horror artists, and lowbrow artists. New Contemporary art has a major following in America, Europe and the U.K., and Ireland has much to offer as well. It is high time that these unusual, unique and technically excellent artists are given recognition and appreciation in a broader context, and it is with great pleasure that White Lady Art can offer you the chance to see their work in an exhibition to accompany the launch of the book.

Goblin Market is a hardback coffee table book, that can stand up proudly beside others of its kind, and would make an ideal gift for any art lover or aficionado of the underground art scene in Ireland. The book is the first of its kind to promote New Contemporary art as a movement in itself, and the White Lady Art gallery is where you can source artwork in this style.

The launch party will be a great occasion, marking the year spent developing and honing the book into something we can all be proud of. We would like to invite you to come and celebrate the artwork and artists at this very special event.
