The F.E. McWilliam Gallery and Studio is dedicated to the memory of sculptor Frederick Edward McWilliam, one of Ireland’s most influential and successful artists. F.E. McWilliam was born in Banbridge on the 30th April 1909. He died in London in 1992 and the executors of his estate donated the sculptor’s studio and its contents to the town of his birth.
Featuring a permanent display of McWilliam’s work, temporary exhibitions of Irish and international art, a craft shop, café and Banbridge Tourist Information Centre, the F.E. McWilliam Gallery and Studio attracts a wide range of local, national and international visitors.
Due to the changeover of exhibitions the gallery space will be closed from Monday 11th November and will re-open on Saturday 23rd November for the next exhibition ‘Together Now’. Quails at the Gallery, the Sculpture Garden and Studio are open as normal.
The Gallery will be open on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th November for Christmas Crafts at the Gallery.
