Irish Examiner - Supplement - - KINSALE - Ma­jella Flynn

Art en­thu­si­asts, col­lec­tors and first- time buy­ers can browse through an ex­cit­ing col­lec­tion of works at Kin­sale Art Gallery, which over­looks the ma­rina in Kin­sale. The gallery stocks work by lead­ing Ir­ish artists in­clud­ing James Bro­han, Gla­dys Mac­cabe, Colin Gib­son and Arthur Mader­son.

The Boathouse Gallery has built up a unique col­lec­tion of con­tem­po­rary Ir­ish art since its open­ing in 2010.

The own­ers, the Tim­mons fam­ily, find that artists are very keen to avail of the op­por­tu­nity to show­case their work in the pic­turesque town of Kin­sale.

The Gallery Kin­sale, on Main Street, boasts a great col­lec­tion of lo­cal scenes and pro­motes the best of Ir­ish and in­ter­na­tional con­tem­po­rary art.

Giles Nor­man Pho­tog­ra­phy Gallery is set in a Ge­or­gian build­ing in the cen­tre of Kin­sale. Giles Nor­man is one of Ire­land’s lead­ing pho­tog­ra­phers, renowned for his dis­tinc­tive col­lec­tion of black and white im­ages.

These stun­ning im­ages can all be viewed at the Kin­sale gallery, and it is here too where all of Nor­man’s de­sign­ing, print­ing and fram­ing of his pho­to­graphs are car­ried out.

Gallery 23 is ex­clu­sive to the work of in­ter­na­tional con­tem­po­rary artists, painter Philip French RCA and sculp­tor Kate French. It is sit­u­ated on Chair­man’s Lane in their own pe­riod, listed build­ing.
