Taylor Galleries is delighted to be back showcasing work by gallery artists at VUE 2015. This year the gallery's stand features selected works by David Quinn, Sean McSweeney, Janet Mullarney, Brian Bourke, Patricia Burns, Ann Quinn, Charles Tyrrell, Louise Neiland, Colin Harrison, Makiko Nakamura, Denis Farrell, Maria Simonds-Gooding, Mary Lohan, John Doherty, Bernadette Kiely, Martin Gale, Pat Harris, Michael Cullen and Ruth McDonnell.
The gallery at 16 Kildare Street, Dublin 2 shows a selection of contemporary and 20th century Irish painting, sculpture, print and works on paper. Throughout the year it mounts a series of solo exhibitions by gallery artists and two large group shows, one in August and one over the Christmas period. It is also home to LACUNA [ ], an ongoing curatorial project by David Quinn and Sabina Mac Mahon. The gallery’s exhibition space is situated over two floors of a Georgian house which dates from 1759.
Taylor Galleries was founded by John Taylor in 1978 and a number of gallery artists were inherited from Leo Smith’s Dawson Gallery, established by Smith in 1944 at 4 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 following his departure from the Victor Waddington Gallery. John, who had worked with Smith since 1964, continued to run the Dawson Gallery until it closed in 1978, opening Taylor Galleries in its place in the same year at 6 Dawson Street. In 1990 Taylor Galleries relocated to smaller premises at 34 Kildare Street before moving up the road to the current space at 16 Kildare Street in 1996. Today the gallery is managed by John and his brother Patrick Taylor.
