Bridge Street Studios was founded by four ceramic artists in 1996. It is located in an 18th century building opposite St Nicholas’ church in Bridge Street, Dundalk, Co. Louth. This facility functions primarily as a workspace for individual professional artist members, where resources and equipment are shared.
When it was first set up it was the first group studio in Co. Louth. Since then its membership has grown. There are now always at least ten professional artists working at Bridge Street Studios. These artists work in a variety of different artistic disciplines including ceramics, painting, textiles and jewellery. The range of work spans the craft and art spectrum.
Their work is available from the studio itself as well as galleries and craft outlets throughout Ireland. The members also provide a commissioning service for individuals and corporate clients who wish to purchase original artworks.
Bridge Street Studios opened ‘The Gateway Gallery’ to the public at Christmas 2003.
