Renewal: Printmakers from the New Northern Ireland

2/19/10 - 3/21/2010

Main Library

Skylight Gallery Exhibit Area - 6th Floor

100 Larkin St.

Eighteen of Northern Ireland’s most significant contemporary printmakers present 35 works reflecting the styles, interests and concerns of the unique and vibrant culture of the country. Thanks to the pre-recession rise in the European economy and the end of factional violence in the region, Northern Ireland experienced a renaissance in which its cultural history and its contemporary art played equally starring roles. The artworks were created from a variety of techniques, including monotype, collagraph prints, monoprints, viscosity printing, and carborundum. Many of the featured prints offer a glimpse into ever-changing landscape of Northern Ireland – the dramatic coastline, the incredible color of the sea and the bleakness of the rain.
