The Great Complex Art Draw has happened! On the evening of December 16th 2015 the Complex upstairs space was converted into a hybrid art gallery, cocktail bar and cabaret venue and the Art Draw ticket holders and their friends came to sample the atmosphere of the new Complex and find out what art work they had won.
First of all we owe huge thanks to the twenty five amazing artists who so generously donated their work to The Complex and made the event the huge success that it was. They are: John Cronin, Brian Maguire, Angela Velazquez, Claire Maloney, David Fitzgerald, David Jacques, Erin Quinn, Jacqueline O’Driscoll, Liam O’Rourke, Martin Cregg, Oliver Whelan, Paul McGrane, Rachel Egan, Richard Hearns, Roger O’Neill, Ronan O’Reilly, Seán Molloy, Sinéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Stephen McCullagh, Steve Doody, Tomas O Riordan, Oonagh Flynn, Jane Locke, Peter Thomerson and Mick Timmins.
Thanks and congratulations also to all those who bought tickets.
The evening was hosted by comedian Karl Spain and raised a total of €8700 , which will contribute significantly to the refurbishment costs of the venue.
Here are some photos of the evening.
and here is a panorama of many of the artworks that were up for auction:
