Dunamaise Arts Centre





Unlegendary Heroes  showcases a limited edition box set of silk screen prints and exhibition. The exhibition is a collaboration between visual artist and print maker Geraldine O’Reilly and Poet Mary O’Donnell. O’Reilly selected ten of O’Donnell’s poems and created watercolour illustrations which were then developed into silk screen prints. The poems were digitally set by Mary Plunkett of Belgrave Press and screen printed alongside the illustrations. Eilis Murphy/Folded Leaf award winning bookbinder was commissioned to create a beautifully box to contain the prints. One set was framed individually for exhibition purposes. An educational aspect to the exhibition is included in the form of three visual panels explaining the technical processes involved in creating the artwork. Unlegendary Heroes is available in a limited edition of 12 sets. The project was printed at Graphic Studio Dublin where O’Reilly is a long time member. A interview with Geraldine O’Reilly and Mary O’Donnell will be hosted by the Laois Arts Officer on the 9th February 2022 at  11 am at the Dunamaise Arts Centre, Portlaoise, Co Laois. The talk is free and open to the public.
