County Wexford Art Collection
The County Wexford Art Collection was inaugurated soon after the establishment of the County Arts Department in 1994.
Consisting of almost 200 pieces of purcased, donated and loaned works, the collection is managed by the Arts Department in consultation with the Friends of County Wexford Art Collection.
The collection itself contains pieces by such noted artists as Neil Shawcross, Louis le Brocquy, Colin Davidson and Mary Swanzy. Wexford County Council is one of only a handful of local authorities to establish such a body of work and is proud to be able to showcase a further twenty pieces currently on loan from the AIB Collection of Modern Irish Art and the Arts Council Collection under its highly successful partnership scheme.
Tours of the County Wexford Art Collection
Free guided tours of the collection are held on the first Wednesday of each month. The tours are facilitated by Mairead Furlong (Art Historian)
