Due to unfortunate funding restraints the Gallery must charge a fee for exhibitions.

This year’s exhibition fee will be €420 per show with a further 10% commission due on sales. Rental fees charged go towards the day to day running of the gallery.

Artists are required to install and take down their own work. Programme planning, curation and assistance is carried out by gallery committee members who are working artists, volunteering to support the work of the gallery.


Exhibition period is 3- 4 weeks which includes time for installation and take down.
