Evening Gallery Event / Lecture by Gemma Tipton Thursday 2 December 6.00pm – 8.30pm

Independent writer and critic Gemma Tipton presents a talk which will touch upon the subject of art and collecting. What is the difference between a Collector and a Buyer, and does ownership alter the way we see art?

Following this we are pleased to welcome those attending to enjoy a special evening of art, craft, food and fashion throughout the site of Highlanes Gallery. On the night, Louth Craftmark will offer a 10% discount on all purchases and 20% discount for Friends and Benefactors of Highlanes Gallery. In addition, if you spend over €15 in Louth Craftmark you will receive a free glass of mulled wine and a mince pie in Andersons Café. If you spend over €25 you will receive a glass of wine and a taster plate of cured meats and cheese.

Two remarkable local choir groups, Cecilian Choir and Nota Bene Choir, will sing during the evening.
