Some readers may be aware that R & I are opening an art gallery/retail-emporium (tongue in cheek) in Waterford City. We're calling our little venture Manifesto which dictionary.com informs me means
"a public declaration of intentions, opinions, objectives, or motives, as one issued by a government, sovereign, or organization.".
So that's sorted then! It's very exciting to meet new artists, peruse the generally amazing collection of work they've got stashed away and then talk them into letting us sell it in Manifesto. By and large the feedback has been very positive. Last night we attended an exhibition in Waterford by Mercedes Helnwein in Eric Theze's absolutely stunning new restaraunt, La Boheme. La Boheme is based in the same 18th century listed building as Manifesto and I can strongly recommend both the ambience and the food. Stylish, scrumptious and reasonably priced. You really must visit.
