Committed to exhibiting the work of established and emerging Irish artists, along with highlighting major international artists, The Butler Gallery is one of Ireland’s most vibrant contemporary spaces and it has made significant contributions to the visual arts since its establishment in 1943. Its vibrant education and community outreach programme has significantly contributed to audience development and raising awareness of the gallery in all sectors of the community. Located in the heart of medieval Kilkenny the Gallery exists on-site and off-site as a place of interaction between artists and the public—a contemporary space with a non-contemporary setting.
