The Hyde Bridge Gallery is administered by The Yeats Society,
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.
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.
Artist Andrea Flanagan will hold her first major solo show next month at the Hyde Bridge Gallery in Sligo as part of their monthly calendar of exhibitions.
Flanagan, a graduate of the National College of Art and Design, has been creating work between studios in Sligo and Dublin since graduating in 2010.
Speaking on the occasion of the exhibit, Flanagan said “I use elements of landscape and natural formations to explore the ability to disrupt the temporal and physical planes of representation. Creating an expression of an otherworldly environment, to challenge our accepted realities and encourage speculative thinking beyond the visual.”
The exhibition will open on Friday May 22nd at 8pm, and features eight large format oil paintings.
Beyond The Visual will run at the Hyde Bridge Gallery from May 22nd to June 1st.
