Exhibitions

Dunamaise Gallery hosts up to 8 exhibitions annually as well as professional development seminars and networking events for visual artists. Gallery visits for art students and Artists Talks for all audiences welcome people in, to explore the work on show as well learn more about the artists’ careers, their creative practices and processes.

Exhibitions are programmed through a mix of selections from Open Calls, direct invitation and community focused projects. Sometimes tied into the performing arts programme or the calendar of local and national events, each year exhibitions feature work in a variety of media and include solo and group shows.   

The next opportunity to apply for an exhibition will be widely advertised in summer 2021, for exhibitions 2021-2024.  Guidelines and application details will be posted here at that time. 

In the meantime, please enjoy exploring our online Exhibitions below. We look forward to welcoming you back into Dunamaise Gallery as soon as circumstances allow.

"I visited Japan in 2008 and was just so moved by what I saw at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I feel passionately about the nuclear threat and this work creates a calm and peaceful environment for people to come in and contemplate the meaning of what was done and what the future holds"

Stacia Blake, 2011

PIECE WORK FRIENDS 2011 is an exhibition by Laois artist Stacia Blake and friends which opened on 11th August. The work displayed will then be donated and sent to the Peace Parks in Nagasaki and Hiroshima in Japan as a symbol of peace and friendship.
