Solomon Fine Art, established in 1981, is recognised as one of Ireland’s leading contemporary art galleries and has built its outstanding reputation representing both Irish and international artists working in both figurative and abstract styles. The Solomon Gallery is particularly well known for specializing in bronze sculpture.
In recent years the Solomon has undertaken a number of significant projects that include mounting major off-site outdoor exhibitions in the Iveagh Gardens in Dublin and the Village at Lyons in Kildare. In 2015, in conjunction with the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) and The Doyle Collection hotel group, Solomon Fine Art launched PORTFOLIO @ Solomon - a second pop-up exhibition space dedicated to Irish design & craft to coincide with the ID2015 Year of Irish Design.
Solomon Fine Art is owned and run by Tara Murphy who started working at the gallery in 1994 under the directorship of former owner Suzanne Macdougald. Tara is a History of Art and Arts Administration graduate of UCD and has over 20 years experience in curating, dealing in and advising on modern and contemporary Irish art. In 2011, having been located in Powerscourt Townhouse in Dublin, the gallery moved to its current premises on Balfe Street, just off Grafton Street in the heart of Dublin’s premier cultural & shopping quarter.
