Selected Works From The Butler Gallery Permanent Collection

G r o sv e n o r Ro o m , Th e C a st l e

The Butler Gallery has been in residence in the basement of Kilkenny Castle since 1975, where a major contemporary art gallery has flourished providing a diverse programme of exhibitions, education and community
outreach. The Gallery has an extraordinary resource in its fine permanent collection. Established in 1943, the collection has continued to flourish through gift, loan and purchase. It is a rich archive to which the inquisitive eye may turn and return. Including a long-term loan from the Sir Basil Goulding Collection and private collections, the Butler Gallery Collection is an eclectic catalogue that can be read and appreciated on many levels. Kilkenny Castle is delighted to include a small selection of works from this important collection in the Grosvenor Room. Significant works by Grace Henry, Mildred Anne Butler and George Russell are exhibited. This diverse collection exemplifies the best of Irish art and
we are most fortunate to have its home base here in Kilkenny.
