The ‘Artist in Residence’ programme at Olive Stack Gallery was established by Olive in 2005. International Artists who wish to explore the landscape and culture of Ireland are invited to apply for a residency at the Gallery. The residency aims to provide artists with the time and studio space to devote to their work. The residency is intended for professional visual artists and is fully booked until 2019.
