Thank you for your interest.
Submissions to our Visual Arts Trail are now open:
24 – Hour Walking Gallery
Each year, we invite local and emerging visual artists to exhibit their work as part of the Kinsale 24- Hour Walking Gallery. Local shops and businesses lend their street-facing windows for use as temporary homes for visual art – the perfect opportunity to exhibit and sell your work to a captive festival audience. Numbers for the Gallery are finite and administrated on a first come, first served basis.
If you would like to submit, please send samples of your work along with contact details, relevant links and any other supporting materials, to KAFwalkinggallery(at)gmail.com.
Outer Artists Trail
Our Visual Arts Trail travels beyond Kinsale to nearby artists’ studios and galleries which are specially opened to the public for the duration of the festival. Guided bus trips are scheduled daily for visitors to easily explore the trail from Kinsale. This is a unique opportunity to meet artists in the spaces and places where they create their work, and gives visitors a chance to purchase original home-grown art.
For artists’ studios/galleries who wish to be included in the Outer Trail please contact dawn(at)kinsaleartsfestival.com for more information.
A free Artists’ Trail Map is produced each year which outlines details of artists involved in both the 24-Hour Walking Gallery and Outer Trail. This is freely and widely made available to members of the public.
