|About||The Creation Room is a concession space within Fishers of Newtownmountkennedy where you can see and buy local Art, Photography and Crafts|
The Creation Room was the initial idea by local photographer Jody Connaughton who has
been running the successful Greystones Art & Photography Exhibition (GRAPE) in Greystones
harbour every Sunday (during summer months) for the last five years.
Jody thought of other ways to involve art and craft within the area and ran the idea past local
designer and event organiser (Creation Station) Julie Meneses.
The two took at look at the possibility of an outside weekly market in Greystones but to no
avail. Other options were considered, avenues pursued but both felt there was an
alternative , more upmarket way to exhibit the level of high talent in the area.
Combining their experience & databases of amazing local talented people they decided to
make The Creation Room a reality.
The Creation Room opened its doors in Fishers of Newtownmountkennedy on 23rd May
2014. It opens Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5:30pm and Sundays and Bank Holidays
from 12pm to 6pm. The room comprises of a selected group of local Artists, Crafters and
Photographers. All change on a 28 day turnaround.
The Creation Room operates on a no commission basis so what you pay to the artist, crafter
or photographer goes straight to them unlike how other galleries and facilities operate. This
helps them to become established quicker and produce more and more fantastic work at
their prices. In October 2016 the second Creation Room opened at 8 Main Street Wicklow Town and has quickly become a favorite with people in the town and surrounding areas.
The Creation Room prides itself on offering exceptional local talent at an affordable price. It
is fast becoming the place to come and browse for that special gift, be it an anniversary,
birthday, just to say thank you or even, just to spoil yourself.
You will find something to suit any occasion in The Creation Room.
