Strumpet City
Exhibition of Fine Art Prints



In association with James Plunkett's novel 'Strumpet City' being the UNESCO City of Literature 2013 Dublin: One City, One Book, Graphic Studio Gallery will be hosting an exhibition of 46 artists in connection with this epic book. The exhibition, also entitled 'Strumpet City', will run from the 11th of July to the 24th of August, and will feature a collection of contemporary fine art prints of various aspects of Dublin city and its history.

This year's choice of 'Strumpet City' as Dublin's One City One Book is especially appropriate as 2013 is the centenary of the Dublin Lockout around which much of the novel is centered. 2013 is also the year that Graphic Studio Gallery celebrates its 25th anniversary. To commemorate this, Graphic Studio Dublin members and gallery artists have created fine art prints that deal with many of the themes explored in Plunkett's novel: poverty, a generation's survival and pre-independence Dublin itself. This is a fundraiser for the studio, and the money raised in the exhibition will go towards providing more printmaking facilities for artists and graduates.

Using traditional printmaking techniques to explore Plunkett's novel is highly apt as print would have been the method employed to communicate in the Dublin of Larkin's time. Graphic Studio Gallery's fine art print exhibition will offer a unique opportunity to interact with the novel in the form of visual art.

Artists: Yoko Akino, Anne Anderson, Paul Bailey, Margaret Becker, Carmel Benson, Gerard Cox, Aisling Dolan, Susan Early, Camilla Fanning, Paula Fitzpatrick, Niamh Flanagan, Gerard Greene, Mary Grey, Alice Hanratty, Marianne Heemskeek, Gavin Hogg, Siobhan Hyde, Brian Lalor, Jennifer Lane, Sharon Lee, Louise Leonard, Daniel Lipstein, Tom Macken, Brett Mac Entagart, Niamh Mac Gowan, James McCreary, Niamh McGuinne, Bernadette Madden, Susan Mannion, Fieda Meaney, Liam Ó Broin, Suzannah O'Reilly, Ruth O'Donnell, Ciara O'Hara, Gay O'Neill, Mary Plunkett, Sarah Rogers, Dermot Ryan, Joe Ryan, Deirdre Shanley, Constance Short, Adrienne Symes, Michael Timmins, Elke Thönnes, Marja Van Kampen & Marta Wakula-Mac

EVENTS:

SATURDAY 13TH JULY 2013, 1.30PM - 2.30PM
Artist Ruth O'Donnell will give a talk and demonstration on unlocking the secrets of the technique Sugar lift. Ruth will print up sections from her Strumpet City print 'Dublin 2013 (Words on the Street)' on our small etching press, and participants can also do a small print on the day.

SATURDAY 27TH JULY 2013, 1.30PM - 2.30PM
Letterpress printing has a long history from Gutenberg's developments in the 1450s to the mechanisation of the late 19th century. At the turn of the twentieth century and during the time of 'Strumpet City', every newspaper, book, poster or notice would have been set in metal and wooden type and printed letterpress. Mary Plunkett, designer and printmaker will give a short introduction to letterpress printing and demonstrate some of the processes involved: setting type, arranging in a chase and printing a sample on a small table top press.

THURSDAY 8TH AUGUST 2013, 6.30PM
Join us for a great evening of songs, stories and imagery of the 1913 Lockout and 'Strumpet City', including historical commentary by Francis Devine and Fergus Russell. Artist and writer, Brian Lalor, will also give a talk and visual presentation on 'Drawing James Plunkett's Dublin'. Not to be missed!
