Visual Artists Ireland is the Representative Body for Visual Artists in Ireland. We provide practical support to visual artists in all art forms throughout their careers. Our Advocacy, Advice, and Membership services combine with our Professional Development and Art News Centre to be the most comprehensive support and information service available to visual artists in Ireland today.
Our work takes place across Ireland. As part of our core services we support artists and artist groups working in every part of the country. More details on these are in our Professional Development and Events sections. Don’t forget to subscribe to our eBulletin in The Art News Centre, and keep up to date with us on Facebook and Twitter.
