New Butler Gallery at Evans Home 

Evans Home, a little known yet significant building in Kilkenny Citys history and the broader Evans Home site is rich in archaeological heritage. Formerly it was the site of the St. Johns monastic settlement and later from c. 1700 it became a military barracks. The current building Evans Ayslum also known as Evans Home was created by the bequest of Joseph Evans of Belevan, Ballyfrunk in 1818 as a Servants Asylum and could accommodate 12 men and 12 women. Joseph Evans also provided for the future financing of the institution which continued as a home until the 1980s.

 
Once complete the refurbished Evans Home will be occupied and operated by the Butler Gallery, currently located in Kilkenny Castle. The project is managed  by  Kilkenny  County  Council,  a  journey  that  began  in  2008  came  one  step  closer       to realisation when in May 2018 Mythen Construction Ltd were appointed to
complete refurbishment and conservation works at Evans Home to transform it to the new Butler Gallery. Construction work is due for completion at the end of 2019 followed by the  final fit-out and the building is due to open to the public as the Butler Gallery in spring 2020.

Established in 1943, The Butler Gallery is one of Irelands most vibrant contemporary art spaces outside of Dublin. The finished building will support a range of art forms including a gallery for major temporary exhibitions, the Butler Permanent Collection and  the  Tony  OMalley  collection,  a  media  gallery  and  an  education  and   learning centre. Tony OMalley (1913-2003) was a painter from Callan, Co.Kilkenny. The OMalley collection, a private collection valued at €1.3m is being gifted to the gallery by his widow Jane.

In addition, the development delivers a significant new area of public open  spaces which will include a Childrens Garden, an Archaeological Garden, a Sculpture Garden and a direct connection from John Street through the site to the Lady Desart Pedestrian Bridge.

The project cost estimate of €5.6million is funded by Kilkenny County Council with grant aid from Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht an Failte Ireland.
