Oliver Sears Gallery
The Corks Arts Society, trading as the Lavit Gallery, was set up in 1963 to promote the arts in the city of Cork. Based on the ground floor of a four-storey restored warehouse, the building was originally built as a grain store in 1845. Now the gallery supports artists through an annual exhibition programme, showcasing the work of Cork-based artists alongside work by leading Irish and international names. The gallery also supports the annual Cork Craft Month every August with a dedicated exhibition. Through their ambitious program, the Lavit Gallery promotes both emerging and established artists, in addition to stimulate and challenge Cork audiences.
