2016 marks the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising and is a commemoration of one of the most tumultuous rebellions in Irish history. Curated by Jessie Malone in association with Cork Printmakers, four artists each from Belfast Print Workshop; Black Church Print Workshop; Cork Printmakers & Limerick Printmakers have collaborated in the creation of a unique box-set and exhibition of prints. Each of the selected artists were invited to make one image in response to the theme of the 1916 Easter Rising: in an edition of twenty, on paper measuring sixteen inches square.

Belfast Print Workshop are delighted to announce that this exhibition will be touring to the Baglery's Gallery, Liverpool as part of the Liverpool Irish Festival.

16 forms a unique record of Irish contemporary art in the medium of printmaking and showcases the high standard of skills and variety of techniques currently being utilised in Ireland.
