LCGA Permanent Collection at The Hunt Museum

August - December 2010
The Hunt Museum, Rutland Street, Limerick

Limerick City Gallery of Art is pleased to present works from the Permanent Collection at The Hunt Museum on Rutland Street.  A selection of historic artworks will be exhibited in the Prologue Room and the Captain's Room until December 2010.   Mayor Maria Byrne will launch the exhibition at 3pm on Wednesday 11 August.

The LCGA Collection Policy builds on that set out by the founding committee in 1937, which had a principal aim to secure "examples of the work of all well-known artists of Irish birth, or of those who have worked in Ireland."   The committee also desired that "an important section of the gallery be reserved for Limerick men and women who attained distinction in history, literature or the arts."  As with most collections, LCGA’s Permanent Collection has grown organically.  Its initial drive and direction was given by a combination of artists, business people and politicians.  Limerick City Gallery of Art now holds an important and highly significant permanent art collection of 831 historic and contemporary works by 456 artists.
