The Tony O’Malley Residency, administered by the RHA School, is awarded on an annual basis to an artist who wishes to work primarily in the medium of paint. During his lifetime Tony O’Malley was the recipient of subsidised studios and accommodation in St. Ives, Cornwall. Administered by the Arts Council of Great Britain it offered the artist time to concentrate on creating work. Jane O’Malley has never forgotten the privilege of those decades for herself and Tony and in association with the Royal Hibernian Academy, she now wishes to offer this home/studio in Callan to artists on an annual basis.
The O’Malley Residency is being offered for one year from the end of August 2022 to the end of August 2023. The artist who is awarded the residency in Callan, Co. Kilkenny will have the exclusive use of the house and studio at a nominal cost of €300 per month plus utilities. This full-time residency is for artists who work primarily in the medium of paint. The studio is not suitable for sculptors.
