Cork Printmakers Twenty One Publication

By Cork Printmakers


Cork Printmakers reaches its twenty-first year this year and to celebrate this ‘coming of age’ Cork Printmakers is organising an exhibition of work by past and current member artists, including past Emerging Artist Graduate Awardees and Visiting Artists. The exhibition, 'Twenty-One' will show at CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery, Cork and the exhibition will extend into both floors of Cork Printmakers’ fine art print workshop and into the third floor print gallery, from 6 December 2012 – 12 January 2013.

We would like to raise funds to produce a catalogue that will mark this significant milestone for Cork Printmakers. The publication will include text by founding members; staff and invited writers, documenting and celebrating the work the fine art print workshop has been central in over its twenty-one years, as a vital resource for artists and as a facilitator of significant activities, projects and events that have raised the profile of artists and of printmaking. The catalogue will be a hugely important complement to the exhibition, and of course will live beyond the exhibition to platform our facilities; our activities and the opportunities and support we offer to artists. The catalogue will help to bring Cork Printmakers to a wider audience.
Currently, the workshop does not have a publication that will allow us to do this.

All funds raised will go towards making our 'Twenty-One' publication happen, creating something that will mark this important milestone and provide the fine art print workshop with a vital publication to be proud of as we enter into our next twenty – one years, as a key specialist support for artists in the south of Ireland.

The catalogue will be 260mm x 210mm and will contain 48 pages of text and artists’ images. The print run will be 1000. We are also happy to confirm that the publication will be designed and printed in Ireland (and in Cork!).

The achievements of the workshop are many; fundamentally and at its core is the support the workshop provides for artists by facilitating the development of their work through maintaining a fully equipped fine art print workshop and promoting this work by bringing it into the public realm. We facilitate professional development for artists and encourage collaborative work, through the range of programmes, schemes and awards we offer. We are also very passionate in our aim to develop and realise high quality arts education programmes and events which allow people to fully engage with fine art print, through free workshops; demonstrations; community projects; schools projects and involvement in festivals throughout the year.


In appreciation of your support to Cork Printmakers we are delighted to offer a range of gifts, which are listed here. We thank our artists who have generously given of their creative energies and time in developing and screenprinting unique images for the notebook, canvas bag, apron and greeting cards.
