Art for Art’s sake is an online service for promoting artists and galleries in Ireland, founded by Jennette Donnelly. Within the website, there are reviews of exhibitions, featured artists, featured galleries, news/upcoming events, a monthly online exhibition and information about the Dublin and Limerick Art Tours. The aim of both tours is not only to promote the artists involved, but also the galleries from the established to the grass root. Jennette is also currently establishing an Art for Art’s Sake Gallery in Dublin.

Testimonial for the Dublin Art for Art’s Sake Tour:



“Really enjoyed yesterday’s tour – thank you. To be welcomed by each galleries owner/curator makes it a totally unique experience, in addition to Jennette’s own knowledge and understanding of the art world and a really well planned out route. Highly recommended”
