The gallery specializes in original paintings from Ireland and America. We display the work of emerging and established local, national and international artists. Our philosophy is simple: we are committed to presenting  beautiful fine art.

Lorica exhibits collective displays on an ongoing basis. Taking as inspiration the beautiful locations in which they live, the artists capture the immense variety in Irish, Italian, French and New England scenery. Years of thoughtful observation allows them to move with equal skill between landscape, seascape, and figurative paintings, transforming the essence of their subject in life into a work of art, to be enjoyed and shared by others for generations.

We would be delighted to help source the perfect gift, be it a wedding, corporate presentation piece or an award for a competition or sports event, we will work with you to find the perfect artwork that meets your needs. Commissioning an artist to paint a customized painting is always an option.  During this time, we serve as a liaison between you and the artist to ensure that the finished piece fulfills your vision. Paintings may be viewed on an approval basis in your home, office or business prior to purchasing. We hope you discover a treasure you will enjoy and cherish for years to come.

In addtion to our fine art collection, Lorica is very pleased to represent artisans who handcraft beautifully made jewelry, porcelain, glass, pottery and textiles. Their work is truly unique and inspired.  Please visit the gallery for a closer look.

About our name: Celtic lore defines a Lorica as a "Breast Plate for the Soul." Our logo, also from Irish mythology, depicts "The Wondrous Child" who signifies hope and trust in the future.
