Ormeau Baths Gallery closes
The Ormeau Baths Gallery has closed.
A decision was reached yesterday and the contemporary art gallery closed with immediate effect. The Arts Council has been informed of the decision.
Financial problems were a headache for the gallery for some time and insolvency practitioners were called in to assess the |situation.
Ormeau Baths Gallery said it “had been pushed into an unsustainable loss-making position through a combination of factors”.
Roisin McDonough, chief executive of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, said running costs for the gallery were “not sustainable”.
