Two Master Printmakers exhibit at Damer House Gallery, Roscrea, Co. TipperaryDamer House Gallery is very proud to be hosting Master Printmakers, Alice Hanratty and Michael Kane, two Titans of Irish art, whose works have represented Ireland on the International stage since the 1970’s.  As famous for their gloriously coloured paintings as well as their prints, the gallery is delighted they are showing a variety of their most recent works, which include some 3D pieces. Their output is as prolific and vibrant and energetic as ever, words like bold, adventurous, playful andmischievous came to mind on encountering these brilliant works in the artist’s studios, a rare privilege indeed.  Alice and Michael have been friends since their student days in the National College of Art in the 60’s and were among the leaders of the now legendary student revolt which catapulted Ireland’s once elitist art world into the 20th Century.  On leaving college they joined the Graphic Print Studios, set up by the artist Patrick Hickey and Liam Miller, of Dolmen Press , along  with other well known figures such as Anne Yeats, John Kelly and Pauline Bewick to name a few.  A common thread amongst the members was that they were all primarily painters, which is fairly uncommon in today’s modular system of art education.

The exhibition is open to the public from Wednesday 1st. May and takes place as part of the Bealtine Festival. The official opening will take place on Saturday 11th. May at 3pm and all are welcome.
