About Solas


The Solas Art Gallery is an artist led, not for profit gallery space in Ballinamore, Co. Leitrim. The Gallery initiative first began between Leitrim County Council Arts Office and the Ballinamore Community Arts Group (BCAG), as it first opened its doors on 20th July 2007. The Gallery is funded by Leitrim County Council Arts Office and is entirely run on a voluntary/unpaid basis.


The main aim of Solas Art Gallery is to promote genres of art to the wider local community, by bringing an awareness of art to the public and making exhibition space accessible to all emerging and recognized artists, both full time and part time. The upstairs gallery space consists of two large adjoining rooms with white washed walls and wooden floor, with a further two rooms up another stair. This offers ample space for larger exhibitions, additional installations and artists’ workshops also.


Solas Art Gallery hosts three group exhibitions a year, inclusive of a junior exhibition, solo and joint solo exhibitions. Our extensive calendar of events equates to twelve official openings. Other annual activities include our ‘invited national or international artist’ to exhibit their work, innovative art endeavours for National Drawing Day and a variety of invigorating performance arts for Culture Night. As a community led gallery run on a membership basis, it gives member artists access to exhibit in three group shows and the opportunity to apply for a solo or joint solo show biannually. All artists exhibiting are fully supported and guided by the collective knowledge and experience of the voluntary committee members of the BCAG. Solas Art Gallery encourages its many members to participate in the many activities of the gallery, to collectively nurture the essence of this community based enterprise.

    Karena Ryan, Tara Smyth & Therese Tierney

    30 Apr 2021 – 22 May 2021

    Karena Ryan 'I Will Arise' is a collection of textile artworks inspired by William Butler Yeats. Using his words and language with her vintage typewriter, Irish tweed, Aran knit, hand dyed linens, cottons and silks, Karena creates unique pieces, often adding hand beading for embellishment. She is passionate about working sustainably which is reflected in her art. Tara Smyth 'Imaginings II' A follow on from an initial exhibition in 2017. Using experimental shooting techniques and a variety of post processing methods including multimedia, Tara enjoys bringing an abstracted influence to her work which is inspired by the natural world around her. Therese Tierney "Journey so Far…" Originally from Dublin, Therese has been living in Roscommon a number of years now. “While travelling between Dublin and rural Roscommon I felt connected and my world was experienced through both city and rural life. This body of work began back in early 2020 starting with scenes of Dublin and continuing to that now familiar sense of rural isolation. Having been confined during lockdown I felt a strong connection to these spaces. This has been my journey so far".
