Note: As we are hoping to provide opportunities to as many emerging artists as we can, we will not be considering applications from artists who have exhibited in the gallery (solo, group or 9 walls shows) in the last two years.
The Hyde Bridge Gallery runs the Visual Arts Programme with Yeats Society Sligo, a registered charity.
The key objectives of The Yeats Society Visual Arts Programme are:
- to partner with visual artists living in the region, as well as selected artists from around Ireland and international artists,
- to provide exhibition and audience engagement opportunities
- to provide our audience with access to contemporary visual arts
- to help develop a greater understanding of, and interest in, contemporary visual arts within the local and regional audience.
Funding constraints mean that the Gallery charges a fee for exhibitions.
The 2020 exhibition fee is €420 per show. There is a 10% commission due on sales from the exhibition.
Exhibition period is 4 weeks which includes time for installation and take down.
The gallery staff is provided by Tús employees, under contract to Sligo LEADER Partnership, managed by the Yeats Society director.
Gallery committee members are voluntary. We assist with install, curation and the opening event.).
