About Us

THE WHITE BOX GALLERY is  Kildare’s new contemporary Art Gallery and School, located in the heart of Naas, Co. Kildare, tucked just off Friary Road in Friary Business Park.

The Gallery was established in 2001 by business partners Paula Flanagan and Reza Macdougald in Georges St. Arcade, Dublin and from there, in its humble beginnings, The White Box Gallery was born.


Whilst Reza continued to paint the cityscape of Dublin at home in his studio, Paula took over the running of the Gallery and continued to market and showcase Reza’s work in many exhibition spaces and galleries throughout the country.

With a background in music/dance/ film/presenting, a degree in Fashion Design and a love of all things creative, she is no stranger to the world of the Arts.

When their first baby was born in 2005 they moved the Gallery back to Kildare.

Through the ups and downs of the recession and 4 boys later, not fazed by hard work and with sheer determination, The White Box Gallery finally got to re-open its doors and this time with the perfect combination of a new Art School for Kildare.
