Resort Residency and commissioning programme Resort Revelations began in 2014 with an invitation to a curated selection of artists whose work and artistic practices had resonance with the local, cultural and historical profile of this unique area of North County Dublin – Portrane. The Residency is hosted by local business Lynders Mobile Home Park which is located on this peninsula and situated between the beautiful Lambay Island and the former Psychiatric Hospital St. Ita’s.
The initial artists explored the potential of what could be created from this opportunity to reside and return and what followed through this model has been quite remarkable. Over 20 artists have visited and returned to make work at this site and in 2016 Gerry Lynders was awarded a prestigious Business to Arts Award for his brave sponsorship approach with the Fingal Arts Office. In 2018 Gerry also added a purpose-built artist's studio.
