The Courthouse Gallery & Studios is delighted to announce our pilot programme of Limited Edition Fine Art Prints. This project will pilot the commissioning and production of an online art shop for the sale of affordable limited edition prints and original artwork. The programme will establish a not for profit model which gives to the artist and invests in new work while helping to support the galleries raising of funds to maintain its core activities. The Courthouse Gallery & Studios is a not-for-profit, registered charity that supports artists at every stage of their careers across the island of Ireland and internationally.
