Cork Printmakers Twenty One Publication

By Cork Printmakers

description

TWENTY – ONE EXHIBITION
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.

PUBLICATION
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!).

CORK PRINTMAKERS
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.

Thank YOU!

Dear Friends. You’ve been wonderful and we truly appreciate your support of Cork Printmakers and of our hopes for our 21st Anniversary Catalogue. Of course we’re so disappointed that this adventure hasn’t worked out the way we’d hoped. But instead of giving up on our dream, we’re going to dream a different dream. At this very moment, we don’t know what kind of documentation we can manage but we do know this; we have the imagination, creativity, drive and wherewithal to achieve something that is unique and very special and that’s what we’re going to work on in the coming weeks. We would love to think that we can count on your support to do this – as you already know, the money you have pledged here goes back to you – we don’t receive any of it. Will you consider coming directly to us to fund the 21st Anniversary publication? The same amount and the same rewards will apply – although the catalogue won’t be what we might all have been expecting. If you will, please contact us directly and as soon as you can and we will assist your support. Please call me on (021) 4322 422, or email me at info@corkprintmakers.ie. With the money we know has been offered through Fund:It, we will be able to create a different, still beautiful publication. Thank you what you have already offered and for the promise of what we can still do – WITH YOUR HELP. Clare

You know we'll make a beautiful catalogue we can all be proud of and enjoy. And You know if we get A Lot of Little Help every day from all our supporters, We Can Succeed - BUT ONLY, WITH YOUR HELP.

If you want your children to be intelligent read them fairy tales!

Artist Marianne Keating has kindly allowed us to use one of her images for our specially screenprinted and unique Art Notebooks. They were screenprinted yesterday by Peter, Cork Printmakers Workshop Technician and artist, and they look so good. Everyone who passes through the screenprint floor wants one but they are only available to our Fundit supporters! The image is taken from a quote by Albert Einstein, 'If you want your children to be intelligent read them fairy tales. If you want your children to be more intelligent read them more fairy tales'.
