2016 marks the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising and is a celebration of one of the most tumultuous rebellions in Irish history. The exhibitions are curated by Jessie Malone in association with Cork Printmakers. Jessie curated the selection of four artists from each Print Studio and the artist was then invited to make one image, in response to the theme of the 1916 Easter Rising, to an edition of twenty, on paper measuring sixteen inches square.

This exhibition forms a unique record of Irish contemporary art in the medium of printmaking and showcases the high standard of skills and variety of techniques being utilised currently in Ireland.


Limerick Printmakers are committed to promoting printmaking as an art form and supporting printmakers by providing a professional open access printmaking studio, exhibition opportunities and education program. Limerick Printmakers have a long and hard earned reputation for their support in commemorating Irish history and the Irish culture in general.
