Fifth Year Art students visited the Glebe Gallery and House in Churchill on Friday, 6th October. The students got a behind the scenes look at the current “Point and Click” exhibition by curator Derek O’Connor. Derek spoke to the students about how artwork is selected for an exhibition and how the artwork is displayed. The students got an insight into artist Derek Hill's life with a guided tour of his home and personal Art Collection. The students got an up-close look at work from artists like Renoir and Picasso. It was a very enjoyable and educational trip for the students and Ms McGee!
