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 continues until 7th July 2019
The exhibition was supported by Culture Ireland.
