Artist calls for stories

Damien Flood painting

Visual Artist Damien Flood invites people from or living in Dún Laoghaire to share their stories of the area for an upcoming exhibition in the Municipal Gallery, dlr Lexicon. He welcomes participants to share their personal histories of the area as well as any interesting facts or memories of notable or colourful locals.  
These stories, combined with Damien’s additional research of Dún Laoghaire’s history, will create a painting exhibition which will weave a narrative of the area; merging fact, fiction, myth and lore.
Damien will be in meeting room 1 on level 3 at the dlr LexIcon on Saturday 13 and Saturday 20 of February 2016. Participants are invited to drop in anytime between 10am - 4pm to share their stories. 
For additional information on the project, or if you would like to get in touch with the artist at an alternative time, please contact Damien at
