Alan Butler in conversation with Rayne Booth
Studio Talks at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios are informal events in which member studio artists discuss their recent work in the familiar surroundings of their own studio. These events are free of charge, and provide an opportunity to gain an insight into the particular motivations behind an artist’s work.
Alan Butler has been working from his studio at TBG+S for almost 4 years, and is now nearing the end of his time as a studio member. During this time, his work has developed considerably and he has exhibited nationally and internationally. On Tuesday 12 August, Alan will open his studio to present and discuss his recent work with TBG+S Programme Curator Rayne Booth. Participation and discussion from attendees is encouraged.
