Who We Are
Here in The Narrow Space we pride ourselves in sourcing a wide range of gifts and artwork. Most of what we stock is Irish and we complement it with some quirky European pieces. Each one is unique and in its own way is a statement piece, whether it costs €5 or €5000!
You’re very welcome to The Narrow Space Gallery & Gifts website! I opened the bricks and mortar business on the pedestrianised Mitchel Street (known locally as 'the narrow street) in the lovely town of Clonmel back in the early 2000’s.
A blow in from Dublin, with a varied background working in theatre, the arts and pr, I came to Clonmel for a short term work contract, met a man and I’m still here all these years later (and we’re married!). A card lover, I’d always loved visiting galleries and wandering around artists’ studios and workshops wherever I happened to be. So when an opportunity presented itself to put all of those interests under one roof here in Clonmel, I thought why not? Over the years, the lovely gallery space has hosted many great opening nights, with local artists mingling with visiting artists and the many, many art lovers in this great community – with lots of red dots appearing on the walls!
And our gift shop downstairs has grown from small beginnings to now showcasing the work of over 50 Irish makers and designers, complemented by a selection of work by interesting international designers and makers.
This first phase of the website will give you a tiny flavour of what we offer – bear with me as I get to grips with this brave new world of websites and uploading and csv files! Over the coming weeks and months, I’ll be adding to it and giving you a fuller picture of what makes The Narrow Space such a unique and special place.
Our recent Christmas Exhibition was certainly different, thanks to Covid-19! We had no opening night celebration, always a fun festive occasion. People were able to visit in person until Lockdown Level 5 kicked in. You can still check out the exhibition on the Gallery page. I will hopefully get around to adding more original artworks over the next couple of months.
In the meantime, enjoy meeting this selection of designers and makers who comprise The Narrow Space!
