On Saturday, April 1st, the Workhouse will launch our Spring Exhibitions for 2017.


‘From Colonial State to Free State – What they Said…’ – an exhibition presented courtesy of Galway County Council Archives and includes documents from its collections illustrating an extraordinary period in Ireland’s history, more relevant especially during this year that marks the centenary of the Easter Rising.

‘From the archives, 1916: revolution and recollection’ – Presented as part of the County Galway revolutionary period programme from Galway County Council Archives, the images relate in some way to the events or people involved in the 1916 Easter Rising.

Existing: The Workhouse continues to exhibitions on the archaeological fieldwork along the N6 (Galway-Ballinasloe) & N18 (Oranmore-Gort) motorway routes. The discoveries made on these routes are noteworthy for their variety and help shine a light on our forefathers in Co Galway.

Future: We will again host images from Loughrea Camera Club (LCC) from late Summer/early Autumn. Established in 2012, LCC are a group of accomplished photographers whose images have been acclaimed.

The Shorelines Arts Festival exhibition in September (pictured) is also a highlight of the year, for more see http://www.shorelinesartsfestival.com/.
