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.

All Welcome!

Born in Berlin in 1972, Emma grew up in the North of England. She studied Fine Art Painting in London at Chelsea College of Art & Design and The Slade School of Art before moving to Ireland in 1996. She now lives and works in Sligo.

The subjects of Emma's paintings are a selection of carefully chosen derelict houses residual of another life passed on the very edge of the continent. Largely ignored, unloved and in some cases simply waiting for the tide to wash them to sea, these houses have become descriptive of themes dominant in Emma's work at present - endurance, fragility, escapism and the notion of life's transience all set against the changing light and weather of Ireland's North West landscape.

The exhibition runs from April 7th - April 18th.
