Dear all,

Firstly, I would like to thank you all for your continued support and I hope you and your family are keeping well at this time.

ART NOW - all gallery visits are cancelled and will resume, hopefully, in September.


Decades: 50s & 60s - the last three lectures have been postponed until 15th, 22nd & 29th September.  These will be on Pop, Op and Kinetic art. The Museum has invited class members to invite a friend who might be interested to come along as a free taster. As places in the lecture theatre are limited to 180, they should contact the Museum to book in advance, nearer the time.

The Table - an 8 week series on the art of the table will commence on 8th October.

"The table has been depicted in art for centuries - as a setting fr still life and as a focal point for domestic, religious and political conversation; but it can also reveal the aspirations of class in the display of luxurious food and tableware against the realities of poverty and hunger.


Lavery & Luke - 11th & 18th May.  These lectures have been cancelled.

Finally, keep safe and well and I hope to see you in the autumn.

Best wishes, Amanda 


Contemporary art in Northern Ireland thrives in a wide variety of locations, from large scale galleries like The MAC, the Golden Thread Gallery and the Ulster Museum in Belfast, the F E McWilliam Gallery & Studio in Banbridge and the Millennium Court Arts Centre in Portadown, to smaller spaces such as Artisann, the Sea Holly gallery and the Crescent Arts Centre in Belfast, and the Battletown Gallery and Georgian Gallery in Newtownards.  There are numerous galleries, workshops, artists’ studios and open spaces such as the Belfast Cathedral Quarter and Laganside now devoted to painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, performance and installations.
