Exhibition 15 January 15 to 17 February, 2002
The concept of building a collection was originally created by the Kilkenny Art Gallery Society, borne out of a need to stimulate artistic interest in the area. It is appropriate that Kilkenny artists are represented in the collection and that the geographical location of the gallery is communicated.
This exhibition aimed to showcase Butler Gallery recent acquisitions and to highlight how they came into the collection.
A talk by Catherine Marshall, Curator of the Collection IMMA, took place as part of the project. Works from Butler Gallery Collection on view included Tony Cragg, Janet Mullarney, Eilis O’Connell, Brian Maguire, Tony O’Malley and others.
