Open Call for Submissions; Summer Open Exhibition 2022

Call for submissions now open, deadline: May 8th at Midnight.

The Courthouse Gallery & Studios is delighted to announce the return of our Annual Summer Open Exhibition which has taken place in the Winter Months during Covid. This is a great opportunity to bring artists and the community into the gallery for a celebration of the diverse visual arts offering from Co. Clare and all over Ireland, open to all artists of all levels and styles, staged in the Main Gallery space. The Summer Open is an important part of our annual programme and a unique opportunity of late to gather together in one place and raise a glass to the hard work and breadth of talent of artists in the annual open and gives us the opportunity to meet one another in person and socialise.
