100 for €100
We have asked each of the artists at Art Source to create one original piece of artwork that they will sell at Art Source for just €100. This is a unique opportunity for visitors to Art Source to acquire a specially commissioned piece of art from some of Ireland’s best known and most talented artists for an extremely affordable price.
As each participating artist will only have one piece available for €100 there is a limited number of these artworks available, and when they’re gone, they’re gone! So, make sure to come early to Art Source and see if you can snap one up!

The Artists’ Cookbook & Syria’s Vibes
Syria’s Vibes was created by two Irish brothers – Calvin & Andy – and it aims to support doctors, ambulances and mobile clinics in Syria & Iraq. This year, in order to raise much needed funds for their work, they created a unique cookbook that features artists who have shared their love for cooking and creativity in both the kitchen and the studio. 100 Irish and international artists took part in the project by supplying a recipe close to their heart, alongside an artwork illustrating it. The result is a very unique cookbook – The Artists’ Cookbook. Contributors include Pauline Bewick, Padraig McCaul, PJ Lynch, Kate Beagan, Duda, Gordon Harris, Richard Hearns, Oisin Roche, Ludmila Korol, Ruth Ashenhurst, John Nolan, Paul Hughes and many more.
Proceeds from the book help support doctors working on the front line in Syria, and support a mobile clinic to tends to 12 cities in Syria & Iraq and a camp for displaced persons on the Iraqi border, offering life-saving care. So, if you would like to support this fantastic organisation then you can find out more and purchase The Artists Cookbook at Art Source 2017.
