About the Gallery Database

The NIVAL Gallery Database has been compiled in order to improve public access to the library's extensive collection of files documenting galleries and exhibition venues throughout Ireland from the early 20th century until the present day.  The Gallery collection is comprised of more than 1200 files containing catalogues, press material and ephemera on Irish group exhibitions and exhibitions by non-Irish artists.

The Gallery Database is a reference resource providing basic details on Irish galleries including name, address, dates of existence, and contact details, as extracted from the hard copy files.  A visit to the library is recommended to researchers seeking a comprehensive view of the file contents.

Askeaton Contemporary Arts promotes contemporary visual art in Askeaton town, County Limerick, Ireland.
By developing and understanding how art might be produced and experienced in this locality, Askeaton Contemporary Arts aims to open up fresh possibilities of how art might operate outside a city environment, while concurrently supporting the production of new artists’ projects. An annual residency programme, commissions and exhibition projects are organised, often taking the everyday life of Askeaton as a subject.

Askeaton Contemporary Arts has introduced the work of artists from Argentina, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Mexico, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Northern Ireland and Ireland to Askeaton.
