Solas Art Gallery

Solas Art Gallery

The Solas Art Gallery is an artist led, not for profit gallery space in Ballinamore, Co. Leitrim. The Gallery initiative first began between Leitrim County Council Arts Office and the Ballinamore Community Arts Group (BCAG), as it first opened its doors on 20th July 2007. The Gallery is funded by Leitrim County Council Arts Office and is entirely run on a voluntary/unpaid basis.

The main aim of Solas Art Gallery is to promote genres of art to the wider local community, by bringing an awareness of art to the public and making exhibition space accessible to all emerging and recognized artists, both full time and part time. 

Solas Art Gallery hosts different groups of exhibitions in the year, inclusive of a junior exhibition, solo and joint solo exhibitions. Our extensive calendar of events equates to twelve official openings. Other annual activities include our 'invited national or international artist' to exhibit their work, innovative art endeavours for National Drawing Day and a variety of invigorating performance arts for Culture Night. As a community led gallery run on a membership basis, it gives member artists access to exhibit in three group shows and the opportunity to apply for a solo or joint solo show biannually. All artists exhibiting are fully supported and guided by the collective knowledge and experience of the voluntary committee members of the BCAG. Solas Art Gallery encourages its many members to participate in the many activities of the gallery, to collectively nurture the essence of this community based enterprise.
