Galway Arts Centre is delighted to announce the opening of their upcoming pop-up exhibition, ‘Put a Lid on It’. The opening is on Tuesday 23rd November at 6pm and runs for four days only until Saturday 27th. Curated by Siobhán McGibbon and Zulaikha Engelbrecht, visual artists and current Visual Arts Assistants at Galway Arts Centre, the exhibition features the work of over fifty artists from around the country.

Each artist was asked to address the space within a jar and to create new work specifically for the exhibition. This was an opportunity for artists of any medium to work within the boundaries of a small space. This curatorial strategy produced exciting and unexpected work which showcases the diversity of contemporary art in Galway and Ireland today.
The exhibition presents a diverse group of artists, ranging from established practitioners such as Lynne O’Loughlin to emerging artists and promising new talent. Brett Hartman, currently a student at Colaiste Iognaid and current Galway Arts Centre artist-in-residence Majella Dowdican are featured, as well as well known Galway artists Lisa Sweeney and Ruth le Gear. Maeve Curtis, visual artist presents work made in collaboration with Rehabcare Resource Centre Casla.
So please come and enjoy a lovely evening of wine, conversation and art this coming Tuesday 23rd November. This is the perfect opportunity to start your art collection, as all works are affordable, with the highest being €100. All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.
