Eilis Kavanagh 

Eilis is a landscape artist based outside Newbridge. Her work is inspired by the beauty of the local countryside and bog lands, the West of Ireland and her various Camino Trips. Her collection is a personal response to the scenes she encounters in everyday life which she captures in her work. Eilis is motivated by the need to paint for her own and others pleasure and she hopes that her paintings will speak to those who view them.

Eilis is actively involved in the Art Scene in Kildare. She identified the need and sourced a space for
Local Artists to showcase their work back in 2018 when she established PopUpArt Newbridge and
continues to source venues to enable the wealth of “untapped” Kildare Connected artists the
opportunity to showcase their work to wider audiences than previously available to them.


Eilis facilitates and curators the successful PopUpArt Newbridge collective and continues to
promote and run a minimum of four exhibitions annually at various venues within the county
including the Whitewater Shopping Centre, Riverbank Arts Centre, McAuley Place, Charlotte Mall
and Newbridge Town hall to name but a few.


Despite Covid, Eilis continued to support the “Kildare Connected” collective by establishing the
successful virtual Gallery website in June 2021 and successfully organised,
coordinated and ran 4 well received Popup Art Newbridge exhibitions during 2021, 2022, 2023 and
