Group DetailsR-Space Gallery Lisburn
R-Space Gallery Lisburn exhibits contemporary craft and art from local, national and international makers and artists.
R Space is a new visual arts and crafts space, presenting and commissioning a programme of exhibitions and arts activity based in The Linen Rooms in the heart of the City of Lisburn, Northern Ireland. R Space’s ambition is to increase access, understanding and enjoyment of, contemporary visual arts, crafts, design and other related arts activities. It will collaborate with a diverse range of excellent and challenging artists and designers working in different media, providing audiences from a wide range of educational, social and cultural backgrounds with different points of access to the arts.
R Space will create a lively and welcoming environment that excites visitors into thinking and talking about the arts and the opportunity to purchase visual arts and craft and for their own homes and collections. R Space will raise the profile of the arts in Lisburn, raise audiences expectations and offer them new perspectives on the wider contemporary art and design scene. R Space will show the work of artists and makers inviting them to explore Materials Messages and Methods as a way of producing work that has meaning in its quality. It is important that their work considers: What they use, Why they use it and How they present its outcome.
