Artists’ Studio Visits in the IPUT/RHA Wilton Park Studios

RHA Friends

On 19 Oct, 2022

The RHA Friends are invited to visit to the IPUT/RHA Wilton Park Studios, to meet studio members Gary Coyle RHA, Alan Butler and Siobhán O'Callaghan to view and discuss their work in progress. Places limited / Booking essential.


Gary Coyle RHA  : A Graduate of NCAD Dublin and The RCA London, he was elected a member of the RHA in 2007 and Aosdana in 2009. His work embraces various media, including Drawing, Photography and Spoken word/Performance. He has exhibited widely in Ireland and internationally.

Alan Bulter : Alan Butler’s work explores the materiality of media and technologically mediated realities. Taking on a wide variety of forms through interdisciplinary sculptural, moving image, photographic, and new media processes, the subject of his work examines how realities are constructed alongside image-making technologies. Educated LaSalle College of the Arts, Singapore (MFA, 2009), and the National College of Art and Design, Dublin (BAFA, 2004). In 2021, Butler was a co-curator of Ireland’s national pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, and produced a permanent public sculpture for the city of Dublin, called ‘Smithfield Utah’. His work has been featured in over 160 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world

Siobhán O’Callaghan : Siobhán O’Callaghan (b. 1992) is a Dublin-based visual artist. She is invigorated by art’s capacity for story-telling, documentary and commentary, and the processes of making. Her work finds form primarily through oil paint, with drawing, photography and video contributing to the process.

Siobhán investigates topics extending from body politics and intimacy to culture and the every-day. She moves in the space between the classical, representational artworld and the more conceptually-driven contemporary artworld.

Siobhán graduated from NCAD with First Class Honours in 2015. Exhibitions include the RHA Annual Exhibition (2022, 2021, 2020), Caoláit, Cuid a Dó at 126 Gallery, Galway (2020) and Birthmarks at Station House Gallery, Dublin (2018). She has continued her training in Ireland and abroad, most recently at Florence Academy of Art.

IPUT/RHA Wilton Park Studios : The RHA and IPUT Real Estate Artist in Residence Programme at Wilton Park Studios in Dublin 2 is a direct response to the ever-increasing studio crisis in Dublin. IPUT Real Estate, Ireland’s leading property company, continues to fully support a facility with three studios, in collaboration with the RHA.

Niall Gaffney, Chief Executive, IPUT Real Estate, said:

“We are proud to partner with the RHA and to use our space at Wilton Park as a platform to support Irish art and design. IPUT Real Estate has an important role to play as a custodian of Dublin city. Our support for the arts reflects our commitment to that role and our belief in using our estate to provide a cultural canvas for our artists.”

The RHA/IPUT initiative was founded in 2019. As part of the programme, three artists will each be provided with fully supplemented 6-month long residencies, over a period of three years. The studio spaces all have natural daylight and there are kitchen facilities available. The studios have working hour access, 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday and are non-residential.

Exclusively for RHA Friends. 

Limited places available. Booking essential.
