The gallery is owned and managed by Denis Collins who has over 30 years experience curating, organising, designing and touring exhibitions in the public and private sphere.
Our immediate aim is to present a series of exhibitions by Wexford and Irish artists - some of whom are well known in Wexford and others who will be seen in Wexford for the first time.
