Overview
More
Located at 3 Great Denmark Street in the Parnell Square Cultural Quarter, the heart of Georgian Dublin, the Olivier Cornet Art Gallery is now one of Ireland's most exciting modern & contemporary fine art galleries, representing accomplished Irish-based visual artists, working in a variety of media such as painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, fine prints and digital art. "Olivier Cornet has a knack for curating good thematic shows, allowing artists to affiliate their work to a subject – in this case climate change – without distorting their customary practices. Here he elicits thoughtful, nuanced responses from a number of fine artists including Jordi Fornies, Claire Halpin, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Yanny Petters, Freda Rupp, Aisling Conroy, Vicky Smith and more". Aidan Dunne, "The best art exhibitions this week – from 2°C in Dublin to Outposts in Cork"
