Exhibitors will include Newry’s up and coming and established artists and crafts people including Students from the SRC, Newry Arts Society, Rostrevor Arts Society and many other local artists.

A substantial amount of the art and craft work will be for sale.

The Festival is the brainchild of the Newry 2020 group.

Commenting on the second Windows Festival, Newry 2020 member and organiser Garry McElherron said “I’m delighted to be able to showcase exceptional local talent on the streets of Newry. The Festival of Windows is taking art out of the art galleries and placing it in unexpected venues throughout the city, from butchers shops to cafes and everything in between ”

The ethos of the Festival of Windows is to brighten up the Hill Street area and encourage more people to visit by showcasing the wide variety of extremely talented arts and crafts people present in our area . 

There are still a few windows available if you would like your local art exhibited. Email
