Thank you to the Ballydehob Community Council and all those groups and individuals who have helped to secure Bank House, on Ballydehob’s main street, for the benefit in perpetuity of the village. That task has involved fund-raising, overcoming challenges, voluntary work and the pursuit of a shared vision which has included the creation of the Ballydehob Arts Museum, and the provision of space within the former bank building to house the museum, to mount exhibitions, and to safely store its permanent collection.
We sincerely thank all those who have donated art and craft work to the Museum’s permanent collection. An evolving list of donor’s names will be displayed in the Museum.
We thank Cork County Council for grant assistance in mounting our exhibitions.
Thank you to the members of the Ballydehob Community Council Bank House Project Visual Arts Committee who have been involved in getting the Museum up and running:
Stephen Canty, Robert Harris, Brian Lalor, Jason Lee, Eugene McSweeney, Alison Ospina, William Swanton
Particular thanks to Alison Ospina who researched the history of the West Cork artists’ community and wrote the book West Cork Inspires, published by Stobart Davies in 2011. This invaluable work has provided much information and an excellent background in the establishment of the Museum.
