We are absolutely delighted to announce that our exhibition In Trust. In Gratitude. In Hope. will now run until May 27th!
Already a much loved exhibition, this gives everyone a chance to view the wonderful work created by leading professional artists who have undertaken residencies, exhibitions and facilitated masterclasses at the Laois Arthouse since its inception. Each artist provides their unique insight into Laois-born poet, Pat Boran’s specially commissioned poem The Window Seat, with a stunning series of mixed media creations in a variety of themes.
The idea for the 10th Year Anniversary exhibition was conceived by Muireann Ni Chonaill, Arts Officer, who has been managing the Laois Arthouse since it opened.
The Arthouse has hosted over 50 resident artists during its first 10 years and has presented 50 exhibitions. It has also supported emerging visual artists and designers through its residency awards to graduates in association with the Design & Crafts Council Ireland and the National College of Art & Design.
We would love to see you at the Arthouse. It’s the perfect opportunity to view the work of artists in your locality and appreciate the wonderful surroundings of the Laois Arthouse, a place for artists to create, connect and be supported.
Here’s to the next 10 years and thank you for your continued support.
Open times: Tues. – Fri. (13:00 – 16:00) and by appointment. There is no need to book to visit the Arthouse Gallery but should you wish to arrange a group visit, school visit or special viewing please contact the Arts Office for information.

The work showcased in our 10th anniversary exhibition In Trust. In Hope. In Gratitude. is inspired by the specially commissioned poem The Window Seat written by Laois-born poet Pat Boran. The artists were asked to create work in response to his poignant words. We look forward to sharing these works and opening our doors to the public on Tuesday 7 Dec (13:00 – 17:00).
