The Seven Towers

Seven Towers was set up as a not for profit company in 2006 by a group of friends who loved great literature and wanted to play a part in the cultural scene. They knew of a great many superb writers and poets, who, because of the size of the Irish Market, were not finding publishers and exposure to the public. Thus they began publishing and agenting books and setting up readings, and have continued to do so since then. Seven Towers is not supported by any grant or aid, and is run totally on the good will of those who help and promote our work. We strive to foster an atmosphere of collaboration and co operation among artists of many different genres and disciplines. We also strive to foster a strong international feel to our work, inviting poets from other continents to drop by and read with us and work with us. Not only this, but 7Towers runs readings in the US and in Britain, including the Last Wednesday Series, and the Chapters and Verse series. Seven Towers is immensely proud to be part of a flourishing Dublin Literary scene and sees a bright future for Irish and international Writing.

White Lady Art is a New Contemporary Art gallery in Dublin, Ireland, featuring some of Ireland’s best Lowbrow, Pop Surrealist, Urban, Graphic, Outsider and Folk Surrealist artists. We are also proud to represent artists from America and Europe.

The gallery is a place collectors can come and see art that has previously lived on the periphery of art culture in Ireland; where artists can come and be inspired; where culture vultures can hang out and read one of our art books or magazines with a cuppa. The emphasis is on enjoying the art, enjoying the space, and getting rid of pretension and high-culture diffidence.

On the website you will find interviews and videos of artists and openings who are dedicated to their craft and are breaking down traditional molds of art practice. While the gallery will showcase New Contemporary art from around the world, many of these artists will be Ireland-based.

Much of the art that is being lauded and applauded in cities such as London, Berlin, San Francisco and Los Angeles is also present and flourishing here in Ireland. However, because Ireland has few places where artists can exhibit this ultra-modern art, and exhibiting in the many wonderful pop-up spaces in Dublin is expensive, it remains unseen and underground.
