RECESSTIVAL pop up art galleries will bring fresh and colourful creations to vacant commercial premises and the exhibition will showcase Offaly’s various art and creative forms during the Tullamore Arts Festival.

Local artists, photographers and craft workers are invited to submit their pieces for display in the pop up gallery which will be curated by an experienced artist, who has volunteered to help in the selection of art to be displayed.

The festival has identified several vacant premises throughout the town who have agreed to make them available to festival artists during the Tullamore Arts Festival. These include a selection of potential front window displays, full unit displays (viewable through window), and walk in exhibition space.

Depending on the number of Visual Art applications submitted, an ‘Arts Trail’ may also be developed in the programme.

The official ‘Pop up Art Gallery’ will be open 10-5pm each day from Thursday, May 3 to Monday, May 7.

Closing date for applications is Saturday, April 28. Applications should include artist/group name, mobile number, email, 100 word detail, photo or sketch of each art work.
