Ha, the new What’s on Guide is out, the ink is dry; folks check your letter boxes or pick one up at The Dock, plenty of browsing, reading and planning-your-nights-out to do!
It being printed now means all of you are having my http address, from today onwards I AM your official Dock Blogger, and yes – here I am!
The site is officially running from TODAY onwards (but I had some unofficial trial runs already, so feel free to skip back a handful of posts!) and I am looking forward to meeting you here, to hear your comments and suggestions, or your hopes and wishes for and from The Dock...
So yeah, what’s on in Leitrim?
I’ll start with the galleries! From the 9th of this month Dialogues in Sculpture will be shown, there is two names to be noticed, Tracy Hanna (A Day is a Room, Gallery 1) and Audrey Reynolds (Bayard Eade in Gallery 2 and 3). Curious Blogger like me can drop by during the week and see the new pieces of art being installed so I will have a peek and keep you posted while the galleries are closed; and so far I eavesdropped that Audrey’s work features a carpet that doesn’t mind being walked on, and it is all about spaces we don’t really perceive as such... I for one will tag along to the opening on Friday the 9th at 5.30pm, hope some of you can make it too, the others can log on and see what I made of it!
For the ones of you who liked Philip Napiers’accordion sound in the foyer so much, call by once more to listen to it, I guess it will be quiet up on that wall for a good while coming!
Otherwise, the Sony Walkman question is being solved and answered, so it is Michelle Shocked after all, marking the 25th anniversary of the Texas Campfire Tapes, a bootleg famously recorded on mentioned Sony Walkman, and (unbeknownst to Shocked) released by an enterprising Briton! Book early for that gig to avoid disappointment, it will be something else to see her in such cosy surroundings!
I’ll be grazing through the guide bit by bit, checking it all out for you and me, booking tickets, all that, I will let you know our news and some little unknown details as I go along…
Welcome my new readers, I’ll be here from now on, if you want to know more about what’s going on in the Dock please log on,
Your Dock Blogger
