The ‘Artist in Residence’ programme at Olive Stack Gallery was established by Olive in 2015. 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 2020
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the gallery and the overwhelming success of the Artists Residency, the inaugural Listowel Visual Arts Week will take place from June 20th – 24th 2018.
