Temple Bar Gallery and Studios
Established in 1983, as a response to rising demands for affordable art studio space in central Dublin, Temple Bar Gallery and Studios is one of the leading art venues for contemporary visual arts in Ireland. It is a publicly financed, non-profit organisation which stages a high profile program of international as well as Irish art, including works from both established and emerging artists in a wide range of media. Featured Irish artists have included: Stephen Brandes, Malachi Farrell, Ian Breakwell, Mark Orange, Nigel Rolfe, Daniel Figgis, Grace Weir, Jon Brunberg, Miha Strukelj, Fergus Feehily, Mark Garry, Ziga Kariz, Mariele Neudecker, Ene-Liis Semper, Susan MacWilliam, Mark Raidpere and Vanessa O'Reilly. As well as solo art shows, Temple Bar Gallery has staged numerous group exhibitions.
During the mid-nineties, a new art gallery and studio space was designed for the company integrating the gallery with on-street access, a large atrium space and studios for 30 artists. The studios are occupied by contemporary artists working in all arts media, including photography, video, sound, Irish sculpture, printmaking and Irish painting.
