Official Opening of No. 8 Gallery and Framing
No. 8 Gallery and Framing was officially opened on Culture Night, Friday 23rd September 2022.
A resounding success, the event was catered by Academy Street neighbours, Mary-Kathryn’s Deli and attended by over 200 art lovers and collectors. The guests all agreed it was fantastic to see a Fine Art Gallery in Kildare Town.
Owner Frank McMahon says:
“I have real love for my accounting business and have a great client base but found engaging the other side of my brain through Art especially rewarding. I thought if I could bring some of my passion for Art to Kildare Town with No. 8 Gallery, and provide a much-needed bespoke framing service, it could have a long-lasting impact for both a local artist community and the upcoming generation of artists. So far, and we are still early days, it has been an extremely rewarding and positive experience!”
Culture Night is supported by The Arts Council, Culture Night and Kildare County Council Arts Service.
