Doswell Gallery

30 Years Experience

Doswell Gallery is situated in the picturesque and historic West Cork town of Rosscarbery. The owner, Chris Doswell, has been involved in the art business for the past 30 years; previously in Limerick where the Chris Doswell Print Gallery exhibited limited edition fine art prints from Irish and international printmakers, as well as a bespoke framing service, which had an excellent reputation throughout the region for its high quality work, notably its focus on displaying art works using sympathetic and conservatorial methods. Based in Rosscarbery since 2007, the gallery has hosted a number of highly popular and stimulating solo shows for both established and emerging artists from Ireland and abroad.

Located in the old main square of Rosscarbery, the gallery is housed on the ground floor of a recently renovated Georgian building with a traditional shop frontage. Occupying three separate areas, the gallery provides a neutral, intimate and unobtrusive environment for displaying contemporary art works from leading and emerging Irish and international artists, in the media of painting, drawing, sculpture, print, and ceramics.


Solo shows are held from June to September with selected group shows taking place during Spring and Autumn.


The gallery has featured established artists such as Cóilín Murray (painter and printmaker), Tom Fitzgerald (sculptor, painter, member of Aosdana), Wendy Dison (painter and printmaker), and Sue Cunliffe (prints, sculptures, artist books), as well as the painters Ian Humphreys, Paul Ringrose, Robert Ryan and Gavin Hogg, and ceramic artists Cormac Boydell and Sara Flynn. Emerging artists such as Monica Boyle (paintings), Rachel Heller (drawing, painting) and Rebecca Bradley (painting) have also been profiled.

The gallery also holds works by the artists David Liburn, Jack Donovan, Brian Bourke, Susan Montgomery, Angela Fewer, Gabriele Lockstädt, and Samuel Walsh and it regularly adds new works and artists to its collection.


The prices of the artworks available range from affordable gift purchases to more expensive art for investment.


Workshops for adults in art appreciation and art practice take place in the gallery during spring and autumn. Children’s art and craft workshops also take place in the gallery during the holiday season.


The framing workshop continues to offer its expertise and advice to collectors, artists and corporate bodies in the framing of artworks to conservation standards, and in the placing and hanging of these works.
