Observations in Print is an exhibition of fine art prints by artists Íde Ní Shúileabháin, Ailbhe Barrett, Bríd Hefferrnan, John Keating and Rosaleen Moore produced during their ongoing supported studio workshops at Cork Printmakers in 2020 & 2021.
The exhibition explores the artists individual styles and practices and observations from still life, portraits, landscapes and the built environment, translating them through various screenprinting processes into both two and three dimensional works.
