22 June – 18 August 2018

Cork Printmakers is delighted to collaborate with the Italian National Association of Contemporary Engravers (IACE) on this touring exhibition project. It features twelve Italian artists and twelve Irish artists, with each artist displaying two prints. It will have its Irish premiere at the Crawford Art Gallery, Cork and is presented as part of Cork Midsummer Festival. 

This exhibition features the following 12 artist members of Cork Printmakers: Brian Barry, Johnny Bugler, Séan Hanrahan, Miriam Hurley, Fiona Kelly, Aoife Layton, David Lilburn, Eimearjean McCormack, Shane O’ Driscoll, Kim Roberts, Sylvia Taylor & Anna Ziarniewicz.

The 12 participating Irish artists were selected by Anne Hodge, Curator of Prints, at The National Gallery of Ireland. Each Irish artist was asked to create and submit two new prints specifically for this exhibition project. The theme is open and artists have used a wide range of printmaking techniques; such as screen-printing, etching, photo etching, relief printmaking and more, to create the artworks. 

The 12 participating Italian artists were selected by Giorgio Marini, Vice Director of Drawing & Prints Department at Galleria Degli Uffizi in Florence. The artists are: Gianna Bentivenga, Gabriele Berretta, Sandro Bracchitta, Malgorzata Chomicz, Paolo Ciampini, Lara Monica Costa, Gabriella Da Gioz, Elisabetta Diamanti, Calisto Gritti, Stefano Luciano, Giacomo Miracola & Elisabetta Viarengo Miniotti. 

The exhibition has already toured to two Italian venues, receiving a great response at; Villa Benzi Zecchini, outside of Treviso, in March and at the Universita degli Studi di Sassari (University Library), Sassari, Sardinia, May 2018. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to view contemporary prints from Italian and Irish artists; to examine the artistic concerns expressed by artists from both countries and to explore the parallels and contrasts that may be highlighted by placing these works on paper, in a variety of contexts, across a 4 venue tour.
