CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery presents



An exhibition of new works by the members of Cork Printmakers



The featured prints have been created specifically for this exhibition and each piece has been hand printed by the artist. The prints are available in limited editions, with a diverse range of subject matter including landscape, abstraction, figuration, quirky interpretations of contemporary Irish life, and much more. The artists have used a wide range of printmaking techniques from etching, lithography, photo intaglio, to screen-printing and digital prints. With an average price range of between 100 euro – 250 euro, this is a great opportunity to buy an affordable piece of art, as well as supporting local professional artist printmakers.

Cork Printmakers is one of the leading open access print studios in the south of Ireland and is a leading fixture in international print development. It supports exceptional artists, promoting the highest standards of practice. The exhibition will comprise new work from emerging and established contemporary artists working in Ireland today, including John Aherne, Brian Lalor, Paul La Rocque, Jo Kelley, Eileen Kennedy, David Lilburn, Frieda Meaney, Noelle Noonan and many more.

 Our Gift Vouchers make special gifts, which can be used to purchase artwork or a course from our extensive Adult Education Programme. Cork Printmakers’ limited edition Christmas Cards will also be available to buy. Each card is printed on fine art Somerset paper and hand cut.

Cork Printmakers acknowledges the financial support of The Arts Council of Ireland & Cork City Council.
