Limerick Printmakers are proud to exhibit its annual Winter Print Fair

Limerick Printmakers are proud to exhibit its annual Winter Print Fair which will continue until lunchtime on December 23 2021.

There is a wide range of prints for sale at affordable prices, & Limerick Printmakers encourages you to shop local and give an original, locally made, aesthetically striking piece of art as a gift this year.

This is a fantastic opportunity to invest in affordable, locally produced fine art.

Their team will be delighted to assist you throughout the WPF, & can provide more information on the wide range of techniques & artists featured in the fair.

LP is happy to process sales from enquiries via social media, email & over the phone, as well as in person, and can facilitate payment by cash or bank transfer.

Every Christmas season over the last twenty years LP has proudly exhibited a selection of its talented studio member’s work, and following a second challenging year working safely within COVID regulations, they are prouder than ever to showcase their output.

They are dedicated to celebrating the scope and quality that exists among Limerick Printmakers members while simultaneously promoting contemporary Irish printmaking.

Limerick Printmakers current group of studio members is a dynamic blend of established, mid-career and emerging artists.

Many of the LP members featured in the fair have exhibited nationally and internationally and are represented in some of the most respected public and private collections.

Limerick Printmakers artists featured are Patrycja Bomba, Norah Brennan, Eva Byrne,  Aoife Cawley, Mary Cullen Kelly, Angelina Foster, Helena Grimes, Lara Grufferty, Carmel Hegarty, James Kearney, Louise Keeley, Carol Kennedy ,Clodagh Laffan, Ultan McAvinue, Jackie Mc Grath, Clara McSweeney, Maria Mollohan, Thomas Murphy,  Moya Ni Cheallaigh, Cory O’Callaghan, Laura O’ Loughin, Tony O’ Loughlin, Suzannah O’ Reilly,  Fiona Quill, Rowena Quill, Sibeal Riordan, Seán Slattery, Verona Stellet, Rachel Sheridan, Jess Tobin,  Rebecca Walsh, & John Wynne.

The range of techniques on show includes silkscreen, woodblock, linocut, monoprint, etching, aquatint, cyanotype, mokolito, Risograph, and collograph printmaking, & digital and analogue photography.

The diversity that exists within the members of Limerick Printmakers 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.

LP will also showcase its ’20 Years of Change’ print portfolio alongside its Winter Print Fair this year.

LP’ ‘20 Years of Change’ print portfolio project was conceived in 2019 as part of the studios’ 20th anniversary celebrations, and once again brought together Limerick Printmakers with The Ink Shop & Olive Branch Press in Ithaca (NY) following a previous exchange ten years before.

The advent of COVID 19 saw multiple lockdowns, and the production of LP’ ‘20 Years of Change’ by the eighteen LP studio members involved with the project became a testament to the determination to create during what remains an unfathomable period in global history.

The results speak for themselves, with the body of work showcasing a range of print & photographic processes by the following talented LP studio members:

Norah Brennan, Eva Byrne, Christopher Cleary, Jennifer Cummins, Aine Finnegan, Helena Grimes, Carol Kennedy, Cecily Kenny, David Lilburn, Sorcha Lynch, Laura O’ Loughlin, Tony O’ Loughlin, Ultan McAvinue, Fiona Quill, Rowena Quill, Verona Stellet, Clodagh Twomey, and Isabella Walsh.

Only one print from each artists’ edition is available to purchase.

This is the first time ’20 Years of Change’ has been exhibited in Limerick & LP would like to dedicate it to David Lilburn, the exceptionally talented artist & LP member, who sadly passed away in July 2021 & who took part in this project.

The fair will take place in Limerick Printmakers, Bridgeland House, 3 Johns Square, Limerick, V94 FE06.
