My name is Joshua Smith and I am raising funds to open Cork Cities first Art Gallery dedicated to Pop Art, Popsurealism, Lowbrow and the Macabre. As well as Sci Fi, Dark Surrealism, Fantasy Art and anything out of the ordinary. The gallery will also have artists studio space, separated from the public areas. As well as their own kitchen, bathrooms. I am planning to have a small cafe serving specialty coffees along with wine and hand selected craft beers, on the premises.
The gallery will be holding 6 large openg nights per year showing art works from local and international artists and 12 open call shows per year from local artists.
We will be working mainly with local groups, artists and businesses to grow our community and business in the area.
Funds will be allocated to securing a premises and paying for the renovation of the building. The shipment of art in and out of the country as well as paying the artists for their installation.
