'Little Christmas'
Gallery Artists and Studio Members


"There is something of common race instinct in the work of all original Irish writers of to-day and, it can hardly be absent in their sister art"

Sir Hugh Lane (1875 - 1915)

» View Exhibits Prints
31 iconic writers, poets and dramatists including Seamus Heaney, Anne Enright, Roddy Doyle, Theo Dorgan, Paula Meehan, Kevin Kiely, Robert Ballagh, William Trevor and Peter Fallon donated manuscripts for the fundraising art & literature auction held for Graphic Studio Dublin in November last year.

Copies of these manuscripts were forwarded to over 80 of our gallery artists and studio members to create a print in response to their allocated piece of poetry or prose. This innovative collection of fine art prints is on show at the gallery alongside a limited edition of photo etchings of the written works published at Graphic Studio Dublin.

The paper size of all the images is 20 cm x 25 cm and they are limited to an edition of 20. Priced at €180 unframed and wrapped in a bespoke folder makes a unique and thoughtful Christmas gift. The limited edition of the manuscripts signed by the authors, of which only 10 are for sale will also be available at €70.00 per copy.

On Saturday 13th December from 2 - 6 pm we are hosting a fundraising event in aid of Fr. Peter McVerry Trust where a donation from sales of these works will be given to this deserving charity.

Participating Artists include: Charles Cullen, Stephen Lawlor, Carmel Benson, Robert Russell, Constance Short, Yoko Akino and James McCreary.
