Ireland’s premier art fair Art Source returns to the RDS this November, with a collection worth over €1.3 million.

Running from 12-14 November, the show includes Andy Warhol’s iconic portrait of Mick Jagger, signed by both the artist and singer, valued at €125,000.


 

Presented by Gormleys Fine Art, this collection of contemporary art includes works by Joan Miro, Roy Lichtenstein, Salvador Dali, Robert Indiana and Keith Haring as well as Irish artists Maser, Peter Monaghan and Stephen Forbes.

“Contemporary art proved to be a blue-chip investment during lockdown with prices for artists such as Banksy and Warhol appreciating considerably in the past year,” said James Gormley of Gormleys Fine Art.

Over 15,000 people are expected to attend the exciting art show, which will feature 200 of the best contemporary Irish and international artists and galleries.

And Irish art lovers also have the unique chance to get their hands on 100 pieces of original artwork for €100 each on a first-come, first-served basis on the opening morning of the show on Friday, November 12.

This year’s Art Source showcases painting, sculpture, photography, illustration, prints and ceramic art.

“Art Source offers visitors the opportunity to purchase a one-off affordable original artwork to make their home unique and also the opportunity to meet the artists and hear about their work,” said show organiser Patrick O’Sullivan.


 

Family friendly

The show will also feature a free children’s art workshop where youngsters can work creatively on the theme of ‘Nature Around Us’.

Admission is €10 adults, €8 OAPs. Children under 16 free if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
