The Artist's Eye project has been created by artists, with artists' needs in mind.  The Artist's Eye began their journey in September 2021 when the submissions to the Artist's Eye on Galway opened.  With the idea of creating an alternative platform for artists who were frustrated with the limited opportunities for exhibiting their work, as well as the plan to create an artistic virtual tour of a geographic location seen through the artist's eyes, and also serving as a perpetual exhibition that never closes, the Artist's Eye project was borne.

Officially opened by Mayor Cllr. Clodagh Higgins, the 'Artist's Eye on Galway' was coordinated by local artists, and is proudly supported by Hoogledorf Press, an independent publisher located in County Galway, who is the publisher of the 'Artist's Eye On Galway,' and will also publish the 'Artist's Eye on Kerry.'    

The venue for the launch of the 'Artist's Eye on Galway' and the accompanying exhibition was in the Galmont Hotel.  Centrally located just off Eyre Square, the Galmont Hotel boasts lovely panoramic views over Lough Atalia, an inlet off of the well-known Galway Bay.  The official launch took place on Monday, the 4th of July, at 7:30pm, and the exhibition continued to be open to the public on the 5th and 6th of July 2022 for general viewing.   

The second Artist's Eye project is now open and the focus of this project is to celebrate the scenes and landmarks of County Kerry.  This new book, like the 'Artist's Eye on Galway,' will strive to present artists with an opportunity to showcase their work in a beautiful publication, as well as participate in a physical exhibition in Killarney in April 2023.
