We’ve developed an exciting programme this year with kind support from the Arts Council Ireland Project Award, Galway City Council and of course, our members.  Our project award will sustain two projects, that feature residencies, exhibitions and publications: Rare Exports and 2×2. Each month sees a new exhibition by exciting, risk-taking artists arriving to our gallery space.
Scroll down to see details of our programme, events and forthcoming opportunities to attend talks & classes, exhibit, or undertake a residency with 126.
