About
Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S) is a gallery and artists' studios complex located in the heart of Dublin and the Temple Bar cultural quarter. It is one of the first DIY artist initiatives in Ireland started by a group of artists and administrators in 1983. In the 1980's, TBG+S was instrumental in establishing Temple Bar's reputation as a place for cultural activities in Dublin and led to its regeneration as Dublin's Cultural Quarter in the early 1990's. At Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S), we place the artist at the heart of everything we do. TBG+S works to support professional visual artists and to connect as many people as possible, with the engaging dynamic of art. We do this by providing affordable studio space to over 40 artists annually and through our vibrant programme of exhibitions and events. The building is home to 30 artists' studios that provide artists with a warm and spacious working environment and allows them to be located within a creative community in the city. The gallery features art work by the most compelling Irish and International artists in five exhibitions annually. At TBG+S, all of our programmes are free and accessible to everyone with a curiosity about visual art. The Talks + Events series includes studio and gallery tours, lectures, critical discussions and film screenings for audiences. Our Education programme works with young people, families and schools in Dublin city. TBG+S is funded through annual funding from the Arts Council of Ireland. Dublin City Council is also a funder of TBG+S and the main corporate sponsor is Mason Hayes & Curran.

Food for Body and Soul in Temple Bar
Oct 2013 • Couples
Hubby and I are regular visitors to the Temple Bar Gallery and Studios and when we popped in for lunch at the weekend to sample the fare at the pop-up restaurant within the Gallery space. TBG+S supports professional artists by providing affordable studio space to over 40 artists annually. From 11 Oct to 2 Nov, "The Worker's Cafe" transforms the gallery at TBG+S into a pop-up cafe and social space for discussion, learning, sharing skills and food. "The Hare" is a project by artist Fiona Hallinan and chef Katie Sanderson; a temporary kitchen which provides dips, breads, a main course (vegetarian) which changes daily, tea, coffee and home made dessert. The emphasis is on raw, organic and diners find a spot at shared tables/benches in one half of the gallery space. Service is relaxed and friendly and the food is fresh and vibrant. The other half of the gallery space facilitates the workshops which take place daily during the project. Some of the workshops are free and food charges are very reasonable. This is a great initiative for artists but also encourages participation by diners and members of the public - well done! Do visit and enjoy the space.

A small gallery, but quite nice to visit. It won't take a lot of your time and they usually have pretty amazing exhibitions, generally for free (at least, I went there quite a few times and they never charged me a ticked). Try visiting it while walking around the Temple Bar neighbourhood.

I went to Temple Bar, as I was staying nearby and was advised to least go check it out. Came across this space (www.templebargallery.com) which had a installation(?) by Liam O' Callighan. Brilliant. If you ever have a chance to experience Bit Symphony, do so. Granted, you need to be ok with tape loops as a starting concept).
