The Painter's Palette has reopened at Carbury Court. Camp Street, Oughterard, Co. Galway. You'll find us on the first floor opposite the Betting Shop. The entrance is down the lane leading to the rear car park, where the barrier is. This private commercial car park is not our property: there is a charge of €2. There is plenty of free on and off road parking available in the village.
Lynda's painting classes are ongoing in the studio at the gallery. We're also running workshops: Calligraphy, photography, stained glass, card making, felt making and fabric arts, and bronze casting (sculpture).
Alan continues with the framing service. So bring in all those items, flat or not, that you've always wanted to get framed, and we'll help you display them to best advantage. Nothing makes such a difference to a picture as a good frame!

9.30 am to 6.00 pm

The Painter’s Palette Art Gallery was opened by Lynda and Alan Cookson in July 2010 to coincide with the annual Galway Arts Festival. The gallery represented 40 artists, in a temporary space, at an exhibition entitled “Riding High” staged specifically for the festival in Galway.
In October 2010 The Painter’s Palette opened in a permanent space in Moycullen, a town on the periphery of Galway City. Some of the artists exhibited in the gallery were: Frank O’Dea, Philip Gray, Belinda Fair, Maria MacGee, Michelle Conroy, Mehrdad Talaei Keyvan, Margaret O’Dwyer and Lynda Cookson.
The gallery included a framing service, a coffee shop and a teaching studio all set within a large, light and airy gallery space. The gallery was so loved by the locals that we won an award for the most attractive retail outlet and best window display in March 2012.
