3 Star Hotel Galway City Centre
The Kenny Gallery
The gallery organises some eighteen solo and group exhibitions each year, including retrospectives, and we actively promote emerging talent. Over the years we have showcased the work of emerging Irish artists, many of whom have become household names. The works of Jack Yeats, Paul Henry, Sean Keating, George Campbell, Louis le Brocquy, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dalí Sidney Nolan and many others have gone through the doors of Kennys. In addition, we have an ongoing everchanging group show of several hundred works - oils, watercolours, sculpture, stained glass, ceramics, photography and graphics.
In recent years, the gallery has been commissioned by private individuals, companies and public institutions to decorate their homes and premises with art. A member of our consultation team can visit your home or place of business and advise on a stylish artistic layout to suit your environment. Our time, advice and proposals are entirely free of charge.
Dolan Art House
Irish Art Auctions have been a Dublin and London phenomenon and to a lesser degree Belfast and Cork, with few, if any, art auctions beyond these cities. Recognising this gap and aware of the rich artistic culture of Galway, Dr. Niall Dolan established Dolan's Art Auction House.
The auctions will introduce a wide range of contemporary, 20th Century and Victorian art to the market in Galway and the West of Ireland.
It has always been remarkable, at the Dublin and London Art Sales, that a very large proportion of Irish Art depicts life in the West of Ireland. Over the years, so many of our great Irish artists have sought inspiration from the people and landscape of the West. The establishment of Dolan's Art Auction House will draw important Irish Art back to the West of Ireland and enrich the cultural heritage of the West.
In the last ten years a diverse and internationally significant visual arts scene has emerged in Ireland. It is in this development that 126 plays an important role as the only permanent space in Galway that allows artists to experiment and take risks with their practice.
126 is Galway's and the west of Ireland’s first artist-led exhibition space. 126 was established in 2006 by local artists in their own living room as a response to the urgent need for more non-commercial gallery spaces in Galway. We then shifted locations to a white-cube space and invited local artists to form a Board based on the successful democratic style of Catalyst (Belfast) and Transmission (Glasgow). And this year 126 has again relocated to a larger, more prominent space in the city centre.
