  • Descripción


    We are a a Not for profit art centre and artist in residence in North Tipperary near Lough Derg
    We are based in a large old country house with land that is in part being rewilded. I run the arts centre in a volunteer capacity with an additional team of volunteer members and friends. I have been working as an artist and curator for 40 years and have plenty of knowledge to share in that area. We have been here since 2020 but of course the buildings have been here for centuries
    we are also registered as a national monument as parts of the estate are very old
    We are also in the process of reclaiming the kitchen garden to grow organic vegetables
