Soma Contemporary Gallery is looking for creative partnership proposals to continue its valuable work with the Arts Service of Waterford City & County Council. The proposals will mark the third phase of the gallery’s development which is to be geared towards European contexts and sustainability.
Soma is a multi purpose, multi discipline art space that in a relatively short period of time has achieved a solid reputation for contemporary practise.
It is currently under the artistic direction of Artist Jacquelyn O’Keefe who intends to handover the reigns in November. Initially assisted by Adrian McGrath, her directors include Waterford Arts Officer Conor Nolan and Independent Arts Manager Liam Rellis. Soma was founded in 2009 by Artist Paul Hallahan and Conor Nolan. The Gallery has been a home for emerging artists and contemporary practises ever since.
Soma should be seen in the light of a people’s gallery inasmuch as exhibitions must be given the tools to be accessible to the broader community whether it be through marketing, outreach or communication. The aim is for viewers to see Soma Contemporary Gallery as a place for aesthetics, the senses and exploration.
