Camden Town and the Aisling Project
The exhibition opens in the Molesworth Gallery on Thursday 6th of November and runs until the 28th.
I have been based in London since the start of 2008 and have been working with the Irish homeless there during my stay. This show features portraits that were done during this time. All the work was done in collaboration with the Aisling Project charity. I can’t speak highly enough of the work they do on behalf of long-term homeless Irish emigrants. I would encourage everyone to have a look: www.aisling.org.uk.
The Gallery will be holding a silent auction for the portrait below of Johnny ‘Pops’ Connors. The bidding period will run for the duration of the exhibition and all of the proceeds will be going directly to the Aisling Project.
