Studio

Limerick Printmakers are proud to announce the launch of ‘Working Class to Print Class’, an exhibition of collaborative and thematic work created by LP studio members and printmaking students from the Limerick School of Art & Design (LSAD) in conjunction with students of printmaking from Georgia College & State University, Georgia, USA.

The exhibition will open in the Belltable, 69 O’ Connell street on Thursday 13th April from 6pm & all are welcome to attend. The work will remain on show until Saturday 22nd April 2017.

Matthew Forrest, Assistant Professor of Art at Georgia College and Jess Tobin, manager of Limerick Printmakers devised the brief for the project in the late summer of 2016, following discussions about the commonalities shared by Limerick city and Milledgeville, where Georgia College is located.

Both regions are united by similar histories of having large working class populations living in areas that traditionally hosted specific forms of industry and employment. Naturally this has had a direct effect on how both regions have developed, as have the changes in the types of dominant industry that have declined and emerged over the decades.
Both groups involved with this project share a love and developing knowledge of printmaking as both a series of processes to be explored and mastered, and as a distinct art form.
