A BRIEF HISTORY
Dermot O’ Grady is a totally self made Businessman. A family man with four children and a loving and understanding wife, Philomena. Dermot and Philomena have always been interested in the arts, from as far back as 1985 when he worked in the Hotel Business, Dermot's dream was to open an Art Gallery in his native Dublin. First beginning in 1993 as a humble 300sq-ft unit in the Westbury Mall, which was made available on a temporary basis until it was let, Dermot and Philomena tried an experiment of letting the wall space to Artists for a monthly fee. This worked quite well until the shop unit became let.
After a period off about a year they rented a premises on Sth Great George’s St and opened a Gallery there calling it The Castle Art Gallery. Again renting out wall space to artists on a monthly basis. Sth Great George’s St at the time was very quiet and the Gallery had very little passing trade. So Dermot and Philomena saw that the only thing to do was to get nearer to the centre of the action. So in 1995 Dermot made enquiries with the management of The St Stephens Green Ctr as to the possibility of renting the vacant corridor on the top floor. Michael Stokes the general manager took on the idea with great enthusiasm and The Green Gallery was born.
The Green Gallery is to this day trading successfully. Still run by Dermot and Philomena O'Grady the art space has become extremely popular for artist and collector alike with its brightly lit and easily approachable casual style. Working on a commission basis the Gallery enjoys phenomenal passing trade and has since gained an excellent reputation.
