The Hyde Bridge Gallery

Mission Statement

The Hyde Bridge Gallery is administered by The Yeats Society, Sligo.

The gallery aims to encourage all artistic endeavours within the local, national and international community while maintaining a focus on community. It provides space for the exhibition of contemporary art, and facilitates a forum for artists within a historic space.

Located by Hyde Bridge on the Garavogue River, The Hyde Bridge Gallery is housed on the second floor of the Yeats Memorial Building.

Also worth visiting here are the Yeats Photographic Exhibition and the library which provides reading and learning space for students who wish to consult its unique collection of books, and to listen to and view the DVD collection of lectures given at Yeats Summer Schools over more than 55 years.

Current exhibition:

Annie West

July 26. - August 15

Annie West is an illustrator and cartoonist. In 2006 following a chance remark by the President of the Yeats Society she drew a couple of cartoons about Willy Yeats and his obsessive nerdy pursuit of Maud Gonne. We are pleased to exhibit the finished work titled 'Yeats in Love'
