High Street Art Gallery is located in the heart of old Galway, now known as the Latin Quarter. It is a Fine Art gallery and working studio by well known Irish artist Gordon Harris.
Gordon is a self taught artist whose first love is figurative painting using oil paint. Observers and fellow artists have noted that they can feel the emotion emanating from the portraits that he paints. He looks beyond the persona to the character and can creatively portray the soul of the subjects that he paints.
The gallery has a lovely atmosphere inside and has all the original sash windows and high ceilings when the building was built over a century ago. You will feel like you are taking in a bit of Galways history as well as enjoying the monthly exhibits that Gordon holds with other artists, this really is food for the soul.
