To give you an idea of what to expect, Bold Art Gallery describes itself, among other terms, as being “audacious, fearless, rash, naughty, wicked, striking, vivacious and cheeky”, and that’s exactly what you’ll get from this wonderfully original space.
Bold Art Gallery, in the heart of Galway, houses the work of over 100 important Irish artists. It’s an eclectic display, with sculpture, fine art and figurative paintings among other things. The gallery is over 1,400 square feet in size, and its exhibitions enjoy a bright and roomy space. The gallery only displays original works, never prints, and hosts free exhibitions throughout the year.
Because of its location in the city centre, Bold Art Gallery is a great component of any trip to Galway City. There’s enough in the gallery to make at least a half-day of your trip, and there are plenty of retail and dining opportunities in the nearby area to explore around it.
