Special Announcement – Print Exhibition

We mentioned before that the Council of the club wanted to arrange a print exhibition.

We have arranged that the exhibition will take place in the Lexicon, Dun Laoghaire.

We have been allocated a space in the library for all of March 2023.

We are now asking all members to submit prints for the exhibition. The important thing is that this is a non-competitive exhibition – there will not be a selection nor will there be prizes. Each member can decide on which of their 2 prints they want to exhibit.

The exact dates of the exhibition and the opening date are to be confirmed – and we will let you know as soon as we have them in place.

Printing and Mounting Workshop A Printing and Mounting workshop will take place on Saturday 4th February from 10am to 2pm in the Clubhouse, Camden Street.

This workshop is primarily for those wishing to enter prints to the exhibition in the Lexicon, but have no means of printing or mounting the prints. The Club will provide the facility to print on the day and mounts will also be available for each print.

The cost will be €5 per A4 print. The mount board will be €2.50 – with the A4 matt already cut and a backing board also included. So a completely mounted print will cost approx. €7.50

Please bring your images on a USB key.
