ArtBox is a contemporary art gallery based in Dublin city centre. The exhibitions programme will see a multi-stranded approach, allowing for several points of engagement across disciplines. The gallery will function as an incubation-space to analyse levels of engagement and possible cross-over points between contemporary art and courses currently available in Universities. Each exhibition also creates large scope for student engagement and the linking together of arts practitioners with MA/PhD students from a range of disciplines. This will be illustrated through the core gallery programme, as well as special events and performances taking place throughout the city for ArtBox projects. ArtBox is a not for profit arts initiative supported by Dublin City Council’s Vacant Spaces Scheme. ArtBox is funded by Dublin City Council.

Now in its 13th season, the Catherine Hammond Gallery is proud of its association with some of Ireland’s most outstanding established and emerging artists. It is arguably the preeminent contemporary art gallery in Munster, a good indicator of how important West Cork is as a cultural destination. It was founded in 2003 by Catherine Hammond after working for more than 20 years with major U.S. cultural organizations, including the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the MacArthur Foundation, Chicago, and the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
The gallery is in the heart of Skibbereen, often considered the capital of West Cork. Other cultural attractions include Uillinn – the West Cork Arts Centre, the Skibbereen Heritage Centre, other art galleries, a great rare bookshop, craft shops and an art auctioneer.

The Olivier Cornet Gallery opened its doors at 1 The Wooden Building in Temple Bar on January 2012 when the independent curator, fine art consultant and artists' agent French-born Olivier Cornet decided to go for a more permanent space (having organised and curated exhibitions of Irish-based visual art in various locations under the name Olliart since 2004).
In May 2013, I was on the move again working in spaces as diverse and versatile as Filmbase or Smock Alley Theatre for instance, while still on the lookout for a base to operate from.
In January 2014, I found a new base at 5 Cavendish Row (at the start of Parnell Square, just opposite the Gate Theatre). We would have loved to stay but with the sale of the building, we had to find new premises. And we did! The gallery is now located at 3 Great Denmark Street, just opposite Belvedere Hotel. We are so pleased to have been able to stay in the area.
I continue to organise contemporary art exhibitions in various venues in Dublin and other locations in Ireland but having a 80 square metre gallery and office in the city centre means that you can come and see works by the gallery's artists in a more private environment and in the heart of the newly designated Parnell Square Cultural Quarter. This area, located at the top of O'Connell Street, is home to Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, The Dublin Writers Museum, The Irish Writers' Centre, The James Joyce Centre, and of course the O'Reilly Theatre at Belvedere College, our next door neighbour.
Solomon Fine Art was established in 1981 by Suzanne Macdougald and for many years was located in Powerscourt Town House in Dublin. In 2011 the gallery moved to its current premises in Balfe Street, situated next door to the Westbury Hotel just off Grafton Street in the heart of Dublin’s premier cultural & shopping quarter. In 2013, following Suzanne Macdougald's retirement, the gallery director Tara Murphy took over the gallery on an independent basis.
In January 2015, in conjunction with the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI), Irish Design 2015 (ID2015) and The Doyle Collection, we launched our second gallery PORTFOLIO @ Solomon, a dedicated design & craft gallery to coincide with the ID2015 programme. The new 60sqm gallery space is located at the main entrance to The Westbury Hotel and Westbury Mall on Balfe Street, just a few steps from the main gallery.
Now considered one of Ireland’s leading contemporary art galleries, the Solomon has built its reputation on representing Irish and international artists working primarily in a figurative style. The Solomon also specialises in sculpture and regularly mounts major off-site outdoor exhibitions in locations as diverse as the Iveagh Gardens in Dublin and the Village at Lyons in Kildare.

Based in Dublin, Stoney Road Press is the only independent commercially run fine art print studio in Ireland. It is also the only Irish member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association, a body committed to promoting the highest standards of quality, connoisseurship and appreciation of fine art prints. Combining traditional printing techniques with innovative digital technology, the studio is transformed for each different collaboration, producing a body of work which reflects the individual skill of each artist. In recent years the portfolio has expanded to include new work with international artists.
