18TH October 2014, 2.00 pm Garter Lane
Get down to Garter Lane and check out Tea Party Number 5 by Rosemary Dulson as part of the Imagine Arts festival. This is a Tea Party performance based on the relationship between tea and conversation and the social aspect of tea drinking and the ritual of sharing a moment from sadness to euphoria whilst enjoying this relaxing liquid. The performance relates to how women’s roles have changed in society and how women have become more liberated in the western world and how like butterflies they are spreading their wings and transforming and becoming and flourishing in whatever field they are involved in. The performance involves an actual tea party with woman participants, live music and movement in quite an abstract form and it will certainly be something to remember! This takes place in Garter Lane Theatre Courtyard on Sat 18th Oct at 2pm and Admission is FREE.
Not forgetting our current exhibitions The Feel Good Factory which is in our FOH Space, featuring artwork created by participants of Waterford Healing Arts Trust weekly open studio workshop. The Feel Good Factory is an exhibition of diverse subject matter and media celebrating each participants work, their individuality and one of the things that makes them feel good: making art!

Continuing in the main Gallery is the group show ‘Thirty’ which celebrates the Galleries diverse and distinguished past exhibition programme as part of their thirtieth birthday. Both exhibitions are open daily Tue-Sat 11am-5.30pm (and during performances). All ages welcome and Admission is FREE!
