This gallery space has been transformed into a Print Studio to complement the exhibition Rembrandt in Print.
Through the work of four contemporary artists, and presented in collaboration with Cork Printmakers, Print Studio provides an overview of key printmaking techniques that existed in – or have developed since – the time of Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669). Associated materials, printing presses, and examples of etching, relief print, lithography, and screenprint are displayed alongside specially made video profiles that enrich our sense of what is involved in printmaking today.
We would like to particularly thank Deirdre McKenna, Fiona Kelly, Dominic Fee, Emma O’Hara, Peter McMorris, John Beasley, Jennifer O’Sullivan, Maeve Lynch, and Aideen Quirke for their collaboration in realising Print Studio.
Established in 1991, Cork Printmakers is a professional print studio, gallery and resource organisation providing artists with facilities and equipment to create artwork through the medium of print. Located at Wandesford Quay in the heart of Cork City it supports and promotes the creation and development of new work through their studios, exhibitions, events, and education programme, promoting the highest standards of practice in printmaking.
