The gallery building

Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA, Irish: Gailearaí Ealaíon Chathair Luimní)[1] is an art museum in the city of Limerick, Ireland.[2] It is run by Limerick City Council[3] and is located in Pery Square.

The gallery is housed in a Romanesque Revival building which was constructed in 1906 as a Carnegie library and museum. The Limerick City Collection of Art was established in 1936; it has since taken over the Carnegie building and expanded into a purpose-built extension.[4]

The permanent collection includes 18th, 19th, and 20th century Irish artworks.[2] The gallery also holds regular temporary exhibitions of contemporary works, and has been one of the primary venues for EVA International, the Irish biennial of contemporary art.[5]
