Variations on a Theme II
Cliona Doyle, Niamh Flanagan, Kelvin Mann & James McCreary


This exhibition evolved last year when a number of artists came together to showcase the prints that they had been making over a period of time. The journey that the artist takes to create a body of work can take many years as the artist explores, discovers and develops a theme or an idea. Over months, years or decades these prints have been exhibited individually and for this exhibition the series was shown as a collective.

'The sensuous curves of the open flower, curious form of the bud, and gossamer threads of the seedhead have captured my vision and attention over time. Drawing the essence of a plant, as opposed to the scientifically botanical is my modus operandum. To look into the quite ordinary, you can find the truly beautiful."

New Works
Barbara Rae


Barbara Rae CBE RA, renowned Scottish painter is equally at home with creating prints as she is painting. Printmaking has always been an integral part of her artistic life. For Rae, how she conceives and works on her monoprints, screenprints, carborundums and etchings enhances and informs her paintings and vice-versa.

As the master printmaker Ron Pokrasso quotes: 'Barbara is not a painter who makes prints but a painter and a printermaker'.

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.

'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.

'Is this real'
New Work by Yoko Akino & Maev Lenaghan


This innovative two-person show by Maev Lenaghan and Yoko Akino investigates universal themes of environment and the human image. Although the basis for Lenaghan's work lies in representation she observes her subject matter sidelong and laterally, touching on the essential need to communicate. These prints are stories without narrative. On graduating from NCAD in 2002 Lenaghan received the Graphic Studio Dublin graduate award and has since exhibited both in Ireland and abroad.

'Childscapes' - Carmel Benson

Combining figurative and abstract elements, this work is drawn from themes of childhood and nature. Benson's use of corborundum in printmaking creates particularly rich velvety areas of colour and texture. With this strong use of colour, pattern, light and the simplification of perspective, it seeks to explore the integration or isolation of the individual in space and time.

'Dublin Port Print'

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.
