We are thrilled to announce the opening of our second space, An Táin Arts Centre Jocelyn Street. The expansion will also see artist studios Bó Studios expand to house 8 practicing professional artists. Bó Studios is currently made up of ceramicists Etaoin O’ Reilly and Olivia Hill, textile and print artist Bláthnaid McClean and mixed media artist David Callan. They will be joined by mixed media artists, John Connolly and Stephen Hurley, artist, printmaker and illustrator Linda McConville and video artist and musician James Mackin.

Our Director Paul Hayes explains “Each member will be provided with subsidized studio space until the end of the year and they will be afforded the opportunity to join a collective of multi-disciplinary artists making exciting new work and the chance to collaborate, support and exchange skills. We are very grateful for the support of our funders The Arts Council of Ireland and Create Louth.”
