IMMA presents
Graphic Studio: 50 Years in Dublin

The Irish Museum of Modern Art presents an exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Graphic Studio Dublin from 8 September 2010 - 3 January 2011. Graphic Studio Dublin was Ireland's first fine art print studio and, through innovation and progressive thinking, it has helped establish Ireland's reputation as the home of world class printmakers.

Graphic Studio: 50 Years in Dublin shows the range of the studio's scope, by way of the earliest works from the five founders (Patrick Hickey, Leslie MacWeeney, Liam Miller, Elizabeth Rivers and Anne Yeats), right through to a diverse selection of artists from different practices and backgrounds, such as A.R. Penck, William Crozier, Patrick Scott, Dorothy Cross and Barry Flanagan. The exhibition also considers the newer generation of artists who are continuing this legacy by integrating print into their practices, such as artists Diana Copperwhite and Geraldine O'Neill.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a full-colour, illustrated catalogue that will contain essays by the exhibition's curator Eimear O'Raw, as well as Aidan Dunne and Jackie Ryan, along with an introduction by Enrique Juncosa, Director of IMMA.

Yeats and the Golden Age of Print

An exhibition of 22 Graphic Studio Dublin artists, based on 11 poems of William Butler Yeats.

Primary Colours is an annual exhibition at Sligo Art Gallery to increase diaogue and interraction within the visual arts programme, to include schools, and the local community.

Given the cultural integration with the Yeats family in Co. Sligo, and given the intrinsic link between fine art print and the written word, specifically through the Yeats' sisters Cuala Press, Sligo Art Gallery felt it appropriate to invite members of Graphic Studio Dublin to respond to the poems of William Butler Yeats. This is particularly appropriate given that 2010 is Graphic Studio Dublin's 50th anniversary, and its original core group of founders included William Butler Yeats' daughter Anne Yeats.

Wystawa poplenerowa -
'Na granicy' | Where Borders Meet - The Response

'Na granicy' | Where Borders Meet - The Response follows on from last year's international residency and exhibition in the Gorale region of Poland, 'Na granicy' | Where Borders Meet. The project saw fifteen members of Graphic Studio Dublin travel to Gorlice in Poland for an intensive two-week residency with tours of the area, workshops and time to research specific areas of interest. During this time the artists exhibited their existing work at the Muzeum 'Dwory Karwacjanow i Gladyszow', in Gorlice.

Since their return from Poland, the fifteen artists involved have been working on a body of work in response to the residency. The resulting exhibition 'Na granicy' | Where Borders Meet - The Response will be shown at the Gallery Sztuki MOK, Debica, Poland in September 2009. It will then travel to Gorlice, and on to Graphic Studio Gallery in 2010.

Dublin Port Print 2007
Just beyond East Wall Road is a different world. It stretches along the lower reaches of the Liffey buzzing with movement, colour and sound, a dynamic, crowded space full of the hints of other places. Through it we are brought much of the necessary stuff of our everyday lives and yet most of us know little about how it really works.

From Darkness into Light

From Darkness into Light at Graphic Studio Gallery focused on some of Sweden's most established contemporary artists alongside the next generation of emerging artists. Printmaking in Sweden, especially black and white print, ranging from strong powerful expressionism to the most lyrical silence, has been an important key form of visual expression from the early 1880's until today.
