The Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny.

The Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny.

AN OPEN submission exhibition featuring artists from the Letterkenny area will take place at the Regional Cultural Centre Letterkenny from March 25 to April 17.

The exhibition is open to all artists who are born and reared in, living in, or working in the Letterkenny Town Council area.


It is part of a series of events to celebrate the contribution of Letterkenny Town Council, which has played a major role in the development and support of the cultural and social infrastructure in the town.

The RCC has supported many local artists to date but there are many more who have not had the opportunity to exhibit in the main gallery and the exhibition will introduce new artists and new audiences to the Centre. 

Artists wishing to submit works for the exhibition can bring up to six pieces in any media to the RCC, between Wednesday March 12th and Friday March 14th between 11 am to 5 pm. The official opening, to which everyone is invited, will be held at 8pm on Friday, March 21st. The Letterkenny Artists exhibition is open Tuesday to Friday.

11am to 5pm, Saturdays 1pm to 5pm and is free of charge. For further information telephone 0749129186 or see
