Artz Yard Gallery is a fresh new space dedicated to showcasing original Irish art, both contemporary and traditional.
The gallery is situated in Northern Ireland in the pretty seaside town of Portaferry on the Ards peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The shores of Strangford Lough have long been a haven for artists. Artz Yard will show a wide range of work by established artists from the area and from further afield, as well as promoting up and coming artists emerging on the Irish art scene today.
The gallery opened in May 2007 and has continued to develop from strength to strength, hosting a number of exhibitions showcasing the work of artists from the Strangford Lough area, as well as those from other parts of Ireland, from Belfast to Cork.
The gallery will hold four large group exhibitions a year – spring, summer, autumn and winter – with smaller group and one person shows running in between.
