Naas Library Gallery

Naas library gallery is situated on a mezzanine floor overlooking the ground floor library space. The gallery is a large airy space that can be used for lectures as well as exhibitions. It is one of the best exhibition spaces in County Kildare and is available free of charge for amateur and emerging artists. 

Below are comments by some artists that have used the gallery for exhibitions:

"I think the upstairs gallery space in Naas library is great resource for
artists. It is centrally located in the busy town of Naas, just off the
main street. As a space, it is ideal for diplaying work in a professional
way. It has great natural light during the day and it is also equipped
with spotlights to highlight your work. It's possible to hold an opening
night or private view if you wish. The library staff were very helpful to
me when planning my exhibition and they also helped in publicising it."

Linda Marshall, artist.

"It's an excellent venue, and I give ten out of ten to the library staff for their help and support." - Peter Shaughnessy, photographer.

"Last November I had a joint exhibition with another artist entitled "Beyond the Studio Door" I personally was very happy with the Gallery space and was very happy with the overall exhibition. I think it is a superb venue with lots of space and light and would prefer it to a lot of other venues.I found the Staff to be most helpful and many visitors to the exhibition gave positive feedback on the venue also. "

Vera Lysaght, artist.
