The Gallery has moved to a new location


After a year and a half the Gallery on New Market Lane has closed.  We were unable to continue to pay the rent in an area with very little foot fall.  We have now opened a POP UP gallery and have relocated to Scotts Street off of Main in Killarney.  Art sales and many small business have suffered because of the recession.  There are many empty shops in Ireland.  Artist are taking them over and filling the ever increasing empty shops with art.  The space is free and the artist pay for insurance and electricity.  The gallery will close at the end of September and reopen in March next year.
