Dylan Rocks Out For Movember
November 17, 2020
Traffic Jam Of 1,271 Learner Drivers
November 10, 2020


It would probably be fair to say that, out of every five people living in Greystones, six of them are artists.

It might even be seven. Depending on how you look at it.

Which is what art is all about, people. Perception, perception, affection, expression, connection and, hopefully, at the end of the day, a little appreciation.

Which is where this list comes in. A big, big thanks to Ruth Macken for taking the Bosch by the horns and pulling together the initial list here. We’ll be adding other artists and crafters as time goes by, but, for now, feast your eyes on this feast of fabulous fantasists, fantastic photographers and fanciful feckers with an eye for the magic in the muck.

And who doesn’t love a truly unique, handmade present…?

Okay, so, we realised, after four weeks of constantly adding to this list, it’s best to simply publish what we have, and then, each day, add a few more.

If you feel that you should be listed here, just send your details to paul@greystonesguide.ie.

And do include all your details. Don’t have the time for any pen pal nonsense. Especially with hippies.

There’s also a Facebook group we’ve created you can join. Now, go check out Greystones On Canvas here, and our Kick Up The Arts friends here, for more inspirations. Cover illustration is by Avril Crampton.
