The Artcraft Showcase Gallery
Each year the Artcraft showcase gallery curates four high quality exhibitions on the stage at Mahon hall. These can be individual shows or collaborations between artists, can be in any medium and encompass any genre from fine craft to conceptual art. The aim is to produce a summer series of public gallery quality exhibitions, allowing local artists the space and audience to showcase their work and stretch themselves in new directions.
