We have a huge variety of work in stock including works by artists such as Patrick Cashin, Tom Climent, Mark Eldred,David Jenkins, Shane Johnson, Dee Pieters and Brian Smyth. Craft also features strongly with ceramics, glass, wood and textiles on show ensuring lots of creative and unique present ideas.

A highlight of the Lavit Gallery's programme is it's annual CASe exhibition where some of the most sought after names in Irish art are invited to exhibit. The Lavit is also committed to promoting younger and emerging artists in the form of the The Student of the Year Award which it presents each year to a graduate who shows promise and potential. Past recipients of this award have included - John Burke, Eilis O' Connell, Vivienne Roche, Maud Cotter and Bridget Flannery to name but a few.
