Stephen Bennett Studio Gallery
Ardara, Co. Donegal
Take the opportunity to visit the studio gallery of professional artist Stephen Bennett on the Wild Atlantic Way outside Ardara, County Donegal. The art gallery houses Stephen’s original work including figurative paintings and landscapes.

Professional Donegal artist Stephen Bennett welcomes visitors to his studio gallery just outside Ardara, County Donegal. In 1992, after a very successful career as a commercial artist for leading London advertising agencies, Stephen came back to his roots in Ardara.

Stephen works in a variety of media and the visiting art lover is treated to two rooms full of colourful, vibrant paintings and drawings, depicting this artist’s view of his beloved Donegal. Drawing his inspiration from the landscape and people around him he has developed his own unmistakable expressive style. See paintings of people at work, and at play, musicians in full flight, as well as many paintings of the rugged coastline and bog lands of Donegal.

Stephen loves to experiment and has previously been chosen to represent Ireland at the prestigious Florence Biennale, and was one of forty international artists shortlisted for the Royal Arts Prize, in London’s La Galleria, Pall Mall in 2019.
