for the artists at Bridge St, on their anniversary

The slow, silver heartbreak of another day,
Tarnished reflections in the grey.
Gossamer webs of autumn
spun across branches of our lives,
reflect motes that gather
urgent hints
at hidden things, entwining strings
which disappear in an unexpected gleaming,
revealing new silver dew drops,
as the sun reveals the tendrils
of morning — a new day.

by Barbara Smith

An exhibition to celebrate 25 years of Bridge Street Studios in association with An Tain Arts Centre

Join us for a Facebook live virtual opening night Exhibition Launch and Artist talk on An Tain Arts Centre’s Facebook Page on Thursday 26th November at 7 pm

We will be showcasing our work in the windows of vacant shops and premises in Dundalk, bringing some creative flair to the town centre. Over 45 pieces of artwork will be displayed in premises dotted around Dundalk Town Centre. Bridge Street Studios was due to host “Silver” as a gallery exhibition in Dundalk, but with current restrictions, we have had to pivot and adapt to the current government guidelines.
We encourage the public to use our map for a self-guided tour and visit each outdoor venue to view the artworks through the shop windows while adhering to social distancing guidelines.

The “Silver” Exhibition is in collaboration with award-winning poet Barbara Smith who is based in Dundalk. Barbara has published two collections of her work, with her new book ‘Anne Askew on the Kafka Machine’ out soon. Bridge Street Studios have commissioned Barbara to compose a poem solely for this one-off exhibition. The artists have created and interpreted their artworks in response to this poem.
