Many of the LP members featured in the show have exhibited nationally and internationally and are represented in some of the most respected public and private collections.
The range of techniques on show includes silkscreen, woodblock, linocut, monoprint, etching, aquatint, cyanotype, both stone lithography and polyplate lithography, mezzotint, and collograph printmaking. Many works combine several print methods or incorporate experimental materials such as coffee, glitter flocking, and gold leaf.
The diversity that exists within the members of Limerick Printmakers and the processes they utilise is illustrated in this vibrant body of work that reinforces the continued relevance of the studio within Limerick’s vigorous and exciting artistic community and also that of the strength of printmaking as an artform that champions innovation.This is a fantastic opportunity to invest in the recent output of a local fine art printmaking studio. The selection of work in this exhibition highlights the affordablility and accessiblity of printmaking.
LP is proud to be funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, as it has been in multiple forms since 2003. This funding has supported the development of LP’s facilities, which in turn has assisted the progression of the studio’s varied programming.
