The PopUpArt – Newbridge initiative is the brainchild of Eilis Kavanagh, a Newbridge Based Landscape Artist who, in 2018, identified the need for an exhibition space for the wealth of talented Kildare Artists to enable them showcases their work to a wider audience.

Since 2018 the PopUpArt Newbridge exhibitions have become part of the Kildare Fine Art Landscape with three exhibitions scheduled each year in the amazing Historic Newbridge Town Hall. However, with the onset of Covid 19, these exhibitions were put on hold.

Not to be defeated by Covid and in order to continue to support the local artists, this new PopUpArt Newbridge online Virtual Gallery was created to continue to allow artists to showcase their work.

During 2021 PopUpArt Newbridge have been successful in not only launching their virtual gallery, the success of which, resulted in invitations to exhibit in both the Riverbank Arts Centre In Newbridge for July and the Grá Collective Art Gallery in Naas for the months of July and August to huge success.

We continued to support our Local Artists by  facilitating a “walk in” exhibition in the Whitewater Shopping Centre – Newbridge  which ran in tandem with our online September exhibition which ran from September 1st to 19th incorporating Culture night on the 17th September.

With over 60 high-quality artists of all genres, who have exhibited with us since 2018 on our database, you can look forward, over the continuing years, to enjoying the diverse work of such highly talented Artists.
