Welcome to the United Arts Club.

Dear Members and Friends,
Last year, so many of our Members sent in creative pieces which reflected how their lives had been altered during the initial lockdown, culminating in our Catalogue, “Keeping Spirits High During Covid-19”.
“Keeping Spirits High”, proved to be a wonderful compiltion of our Members’ work and their memories of that time reflecting lived experiences which included, great stories, wonderful photos, paintings, drawings and poetry. It was also, a wonderful way to stay connected to our Members, and in years to come will prove to be a very interesting time capsule of life during lock down in Ireland.
This year we have created a Second Edition of “Keeping Spirits High During Covid-19”, as a gesture of good will and appreciation to our Artists Members we have deided to offer to sell their work featured in the catalogue. (please note, not all work is for sale – you will see prices underneath/beside the pieces that are).
Delighted to tell you that you can view a flp book of the Catalogue here.
Hopefully, the printed hard copy of this Catalogue will be available in the Club down the line. We will of course, keep you updated on this! For now, we hope you enjoy the Digial copy.
