All welcome
 
In June 2019, The Leinster Printmaking Studio was invited
to devise an exhibition especially for the Festival Irlandese in
Bassano, Italy. The work of poet Séamus Heaney was
selected as theme for the festival.
 
Artist members of the studio and invited guests chose
a poem to inspire their work. They produced an eclectic
body of work using a variety of traditional processes: etching,
drypoint, carborundum, screenprint,
linocut and woodcut.
 
Thirty-one artists created a beautiful exhibition of 43 prints,
all equal in size but responding to different poems.
dlr Libraries are pleased to welcome Leinster Printmaking
Studio back to dlr LexIcon for an exhibition coinciding with
the Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival, a festival much-loved
by Séamus Heaney.
