A new exhibition chronicling the varied seascapes of Dublin will come to Dublin Port, courtesy of the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club and Dublin Port Company, writes Rachel Cunningham.

The free exhibition, Shorelines, marks the 150th anniversary of the sketching club, a co-operative of artists which holds Nathaniel Hone, John Butler Yeats and Bram Stoker among its past members.

It will run from March 8 until March 20 at The Substation, Dublin Port, from 11am to 4pm, between Monday and Saturday. 

Today, the club’s 80-strong membership includes some of the country’s most illustrious painters, sketch artists and print makers.

Among the rich catalogue of works is Kathrine Geoghegan’s Bull Island Tangle, which portrays seaweeds washed in on the tide at North Bull Island.
