Bold Art Gallery

Comrising over 1,400 square feet of display area, Galway's Bold Art Gallery is a bright and spacious art space situated in the heart of the City on the West Coast of Ireland. The gallery represents about 100 Irish artists producing work in a diverse range of styles, from traditional landscapes to abstract contemporary canvases. It deals only in original fine art paintings - no prints - plus a small range of sculpture. Bold Gallery hosts free art exhibitions almost every month and supports local Irish artists throughout the year. Its highly qualified staff have a good knowledge of the Irish art market and can therefore assist art buyers and collectors, both individual and corporate, in a variety of ways, and the gallery provides a comprehensive framing service.

Although most of the best painting
and sculpture resides in national
museums and galleries, major
auction houses, like Sotheby's
and Christie's do obtain great
works from private collectors
for public sale. For a list of
top prices achieved, see:
Top 10 Most Expensive Paintings

For a list of the most valuable
works by Irish painters, see:
Most Expensive Irish Paintings.


Among the most popular artists handled by the gallery, are: Rasher, Graham Knuttel, Jack Donovan, Elizabeth Cope, Mary Duffy, Diana Pivovarova, Mary-Ann Clarke, Vincent Killowry, Tony Kew and Ronan Walsh.
