In 2019 The Leinster Printmaking Studio was invited to devise an exhibition especially for the Festival Irlandese in Bassano, Italy. The work of poet Séamus Heaney was selected as theme for the festival. Artist members of the studio and invited guests chose a poem to inspire their work They produced an eclectic body of work using a variety of traditional processes: etching, drypoint, carborundum, screen-print, linocut and woodcut.
Thirty one artists have created a beautiful exhibition of 43 prints, all equal in size but responding to different poems.
The exhibition was supported by Culture Ireland.
