About the event

Closed Sundays

An exciting new art gallery, which will feature works by internationally acclaimed local artists, will be officially opened in Roscommon Town next month.

The inaugural exhibition at the highly-anticipated Anam Gallery will feature works by local artists Joe Caslin and Una Burke, together with founder Rita Oates’ own collection.

The exhibits will include pieces worn by global pop superstar Rihanna, supermodel Cindy Crawford, Star Trek’s Michelle Yeoh and Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games franchise.

Joe Caslin is an Irish street artist, art teacher and activist. He’s best known for his beautifully rendered pencil drawings which manifest as towering pieces of street art. His highly accessible work engages directly with the social issues of modern Ireland, on an unavoidable scale.

Additional information 

“The Anam Gallery is located in the former coach house at Main Street in the town, which local artist and businesswoman Rita Oates hopes to transform into the artistic soul of the midlands. It’s hoped the gallery will become a new home for Irish creative talent, as well as providing a space for young artists to showcase their work, with a youth exhibition to take
place annually.

Una Burke set up her eponymous brand in 2010 in London, making both seasonal fashion collections and sculptural art pieces using her traditional leather-working techniques in her distinctly complex constructions. In January 2020, she moved home to her native Roscommon and will join Rita and Joe for the launch event on July 8 th, with her work forming part of the subsequent inaugural exhibition.

Una will exhibit fashion collection items and some celebrity-worn items including a piece worn by Cindy Crawford in Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ music video and gauntlet worn by Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games movies.
