About us

About us:

The Cork Arts Society, trading as the Lavit Gallery, was set up, in 1963 by a group wanting to promote the arts in Cork City. Currently, as a not for profit, we support artists through our annual exhibition programme. We showcase the work of Cork-based artists primarily and present work by leading Irish and International names. Through the ambitious programme of solo exhibitions and group shows, we promote both emerging and established artists, in addition to stimulating and challenging Cork audiences.

We are a registered charity. No. CHY 13297.
