The aim of Riverbank Arts Centre’s Visual Arts Programme is to put the arts at the heart of Kildare life and people at the heart of the arts.
The Visual Arts programme works with professional artists in a range of art forms from the established media of painting, sculpture, photography and printmaking to moving image, new media, live art, design and architecture.
Exhibitions, projects, and events are selected and curated in-house by invitation and through an open selection process. Open Call’s for artists are published online, and through our various social media channels.
Our Current Residency with The Creative Well is programmed for 2017 and part of 2018.
