Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA) is one of the leading contemporary art galleries in Ireland and home to an important collection of Irish eighteenth- to twenty-first-century art, as well as the National Collection of Contemporary Drawing and the Michael O’Connor Poster Collection.
LCGA’s aims are to: provide an innovative exhibition program that offers regional, national, and international artists the opportunity to experiment, develop, and display their work; acquire, conserve, research, communicate, and exhibit its permanent collection for purposes of study, education, and enjoyment; and deliver a high-quality public service program in which both local communities and national and international visitors can participate and enjoy exciting cultural experiences.
LCGA hosts the annual “E V+A (Exhibition of Visual Art),” inviting a leading international curator to select artists from an open submission, as well as invited artists, to exhibit throughout Limerick City. The gallery has a strong educational ethos and programs a range of free, contextual, and family events to complement each exhibition season.
