Testimonials:

Una Sealy, Fingal: 2017 & 2018- “I can’t emphasise enough how much this experience has augmented my practice in general. As an artist who works primarily in paint, I found it very beneficial to work in a medium that is mostly new to me. To have the opportunity to work with someone of the calibre of Master Printer Robert Russell, to guide my ideas to fruition, was an opportunity that I greatly appreciated. Not only did the process inform my own practice, but the expert editioning of my pieces has helped bring my work to new audiences. The open and welcoming atmosphere of the Graphic Studio, and the commitment of its Members to broadening the access to print through their skills and programmes is to be congratulated.” 

Cian McLoughlin, DCC:I was paired with master printer Niamh Flanagan during my time there and the sense of purpose and collaboration was fantastic. She made the experience a hugely enjoyable and rewarding one and, thanks to her extensive expertise in every aspect of print making, we were able to make work that we were proud of as it finally came off the press. For me, support of the DCC for residencies like this is so important as a catalyst for artistic development and interdisciplinary cooperation. I hope this support and patronage continues for many years.”
