20ten is a Waterford based collective of distinctly diverse artists; Pat Carri, Kevin Connolly, Róisín Kinsella, Darragh Lyons, Pat McArdle, Christine O'Brien Shanahan, Conor Rush and Milia Tsaoussis-Maddock. All are based in South East Ireland. The group's strength is the diversity of styles represented. As a collective the artwork reflects each artists' individual interpretations of shared concepts and life experiences.
20ten artist collective
20ten provides a supportive environment that encourages personal growth, and opportunities to develop as an artist. While each artist pursues individual direction and focus, the collective act of getting together annually and preparing work on a shared and mutually agreed theme allows for development and growth within and outside of each artists studio.

Located on Lombard Street this artist-led workspace has been developed by 20ten art group. The gallery is open to the public in the afternoons from Wednesday to Saturday. The multi-purpose facility allows members to exhibit, with the gallery initially open four afternoons a week.

A programme of workshops will be offered as part of the group's Education, Community and Outreach (ECO) programme. The project is supported by Waterford City and County Council’s Arts Office.
