Mullingar Arts Centre and Gallery

Accomodated in the newly refurbished County Hall of Mullingar, County Westmeath, the municipal arts centre includes a delightful Art Gallery, which has already established a reputation for presenting interesting and popular art shows. It has staged numerous exhibitions of artworks by professional Irish artists (including local Westmeath artists), as well as the annual exhibitions of bodies like the Watercolour Society of Ireland and Visual Artists Ireland. As a result, the Gallery has become an established and highly successful feature of the cultural life of Mullingar, Westmeath and the surrounding region.
