Affordable Art

Following on from the incredible success of last year’s inaugural Affordable Art Sale, Claremorris Town Hall is delighted to offer a unique opportunity to solve that Christmas gift dilemma with our second event. The initiative offers  a wide variety of art works in the one space – all for sale and all priced at €250 or less.  The weekend sale commences at 6pm on Friday December 1st in the Town Hall Studio, and runs Saturday Dec 2nd – 10.00am to 6pm, Sunday Dec 3rd 12 noon to 6pm.

Please note this is not a conventional art exhibition. This is an art sale – our second Affordable Art offering featuring the work of six leading artists.
