Ruby Lane Fine Art, Up­per Den­mark St, Lim­er­ick Un­til Jan 31 061-446699 Ruby Lane is a new gallery on Up­per Den­mark St in Lim­er­ick. Al­though its doors have been open for a while (with a very good show of draw­ings by Kieran Carey), it launches of­fi­cially to­mor­row evening with a range of work by artists who will fea­ture there in time to come. As it hap­pens, there are many fine artists work­ing in and around Lim­er­ick and a new gallery is a suit­able ad­di­tion to the city’s cul­tural land­scape. It is suit­ably sited, as well, ad­ja­cent to Lim­er­ick Print­mak­ers on Robert St (which has re­cently re­ceived a well-de­served in­jec­tion of fund­ing from the Arts Coun­cil), close to the en­ter­pris­ing Daghdha Dance Com­pany on St John’s Square and to the lively Milk Mar­ket, where a large pro­por­tion of the artis­tic com­mu­nity is to be found on Satur­day morn­ings drink­ing cof­fee at Mari’s Cheese Shop. In Ruby Lane, you’ll find out­stand­ing work by Allyson Kee­han, Mau­rice Fo­ley (whose Box of Rain is pic­tured), Gavin Hogg, Charles Harper, Tom Fox, David Lilburn, Jack Dono­van, Bar­rie Cooke, Nick Miller, Maighread Tobin and many more.
