Give an original aesthetically stunning piece of art to someone you love.

A member of the LP team will be in situ in the Belltable each Saturday between now & Christmas so that you can purchase work to take home on the day, & ask questions about all the techniques & artists featured in the show. Sales can also be made mid week by contacting LP via social media, email & over the phone, & work can then be collected from the Belltable each Saturday.

Each Christmas season over the last seventeen years LP has proudly exhibited a selection of its talented studio members work and with the studio celebrating its twentieth birthday this year, we are prouder than ever to showcase their output.

We are dedicated to celebrating the scope and quality that exists among Limerick Printmakers members while simultaneously highlighting the multitude of printmaking techniques and processes that exists within contemporary printmaking.

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.
