Become a Friend of Graphic Studio Dublin

Our Friends Programme

By joining our Friend’s Programme you are supporting a great community of leading artists in this not-for-profit facility. In 2020, our organisation celebrates 60 years in operation, serving Irish artists and the Irish public. Many celebrations are planned to mark this anniversary and our Friend’s programme for 2020 will be both attractive and extensive. Among the highlights will be exhibitions in Graphic Studio Gallery, Draiocht Arts Centre & DLR Lexicon Gallery, culminating with a retrospective exhibition in the Royal Hibernian Academy.

As a Friend of the Studio, you can also feel good in the knowledge that your membership supports the work of Graphic Studio Dublin and the promotion of printmaking & the visual arts in Ireland.

An original fine-art print is a work of graphic art which is drawn, etched or carved on a plate, stone or block by the artist who then prints a limited number of pieces by hand, and signs and numbers the individual prints.

Printmaking techniques: etching, carborundum, lithography, mezzotint, wood-block lino-cut, screenprint, letterpress, bookbinding, photo-etching.
