art on the railing 2Art on the Railings” is a joint collaboration of Destination Waterford City Tourism, Waterford Arts Office and The Viking Triangle Trust Co.

The aim of the exhibition is to give artists the opportunity to connect and build the art community within the city. We are using the festival dates to utilize the amount of visitors to the area, therefore maximising the visibility of the artworks and sales opportunities.

As there are no facilitators on site, all artists taking part in the event must invigilate their own space. Artists will be grouped accordingly including collectives, groups and/or mediums as appropriate. Please do get in touch with any questions.
