Cork Printmakers celebrated twenty five years since its foundation in 2016 and marked the occasion with the 25 exhibition at The Atrium, Cork City Hall and the launch of its newly designed website and mobile POP UP Shop & Press. Earlier this year, artist members were invited to put forward prints that reflect their current practice and to consider their artistic position in the Here & Now. This exhibition also provides delegates of the FIRST EDITION Print Symposium and the public, with the opportunity to view the wide variety of being created currently at Cork Printmakers’ Studio.
The subject matter of the artwork spans explorations of personal and national identity; investigations of abstraction; figurative studies; examination of landscape – literal, internal, sometimes intangible and more. The artists have utilised the full range of printmaking facilities available at Cork Printmakers in creating this work, using techniques and combinations thereof including; etching, screen-printing, photo etching, relief printmaking, lithography, collography, monoprinting and digital printing.
Opening Hours: 10am – 5pm Monday – Thursday, closed Friday 23 June, Saturday 24 June & Sunday 25 June
