The ‘Artist in Residence’ program at Olive Stack Gallery is a new and exciting initiative. 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 concentrate on their work and develop new ideas, in a comfortable environment and established gallery. The residency is intended for professional painters and mosaic artists and is fully booked until 2017. “This is possibly the finest gift I have ever been given as an artist. I will be going back. Without a doubt.” Emily Andress (Artist in Residence at Olive Stack Gallery Aug 2015)
