Catherine Hammond is proud of her association with some of Ireland’s most outstanding established and emerging artists. From 2003 to 2017 she ran the Catherine Hammond Gallery, first in Glengarriff, then in Skibbereen where she showed work by over 125 artists. It was arguably the preeminent contemporary art gallery in Munster, a good indicator of how important West Cork is as a cultural destination. She founded it after working for more than 20 years with major U.S. cultural organisations, including the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the MacArthur Foundation, Chicago, and the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
Since 2018 she has run a “virtual” gallery, doing several pop-up exhibitions and art fairs a year. This website remains a resource to discover and purchase work by Irish artists and to browse through the archive of past shows. As Catherine Hammond Fine Arts, she also provides collecting advice, as well as consulting for not-for-profit cultural organisations on strategic planning, marketing and fund-raising.
