Price is right as gallery marks 10 years

The Emer Gallery was established in the mid-1980s but is celebrating a decade on the Antrim Road by hosting a unique 10-day sale from today.

Works include those by artists such as Noel Murphy, Una O'Grady, Victor Cirefice, John McAtamney and Joe Hynes. In addition, purchases of works by living artists can be made under the ’Own Art’ scheme which allows payments to be made interest-free over a 10-month period.

Gallery managing director Michael Flanagan said the event marks the strength of local artists.

“As a thank you to our long-standing customers, and to encourage those who are taking their first steps into art buying, we are pricing the clock back and all works will be on sale at 2002 prices. This is a unique offer which I hope means more original art hanging in homes and businesses across Ireland.

“Buying art by local artists helps build a sustainable creative industries sector which means that the broad range and depth of talent in Belfast and across Ireland can be supported in what are tough economic times,” he added.
