Sailing into port: Etching by Sylvia Hemmingway
Evocation is an exhibition of fine art prints by seven members of Blackstack Studio in Kilkenny: Maeve Coulter, Mary Cullen Kelly, Clara de Frutos, Sylvia Hemmingway, Jacqueline O’Neill, Frank Rafter and Helen Robbins. The title does not refer to a specific theme but rather to the fragile and evanescent impression made by many of the images, which will draw you into the artist’s world.
If you are interested in the art of printmaking, you will be delighted by the variety of printing techniques used by the artists, participating in this show: etching, linoprint, photopolymer intaglio print, aquatint, screenprint, cyanotype and photography.
