PLAN A + PLAN B at Main Guard, Clonmel

2 July, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 30 July, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

PLAN A + PLAN B at Main Guard, Clonmel

Curated by Suzannah O’ Reilly

PLAN A + PLAN B (previously exhibited at Limerick City Gallery of Art) has travelled to Clonmel, Co. Tipperary and is being hosted by the OPW at Main Guard.

“The exhibition of contemporary printmaking offers the work of 20 invited artists and includes an artwork by each artist working individually (PLAN A) and another selection of artworks (PLAN B) which are the result of these same artists who join together in pairs to produce in collaboration a single work.

Curated by Suzannah O’Reilly, the goal of the PLAN A + PLAN B project is to provide the artists with a unique opportunity of artistic and technical collaboration and to provide the audience with works that demonstrate the full range of contemporary printmaking styles and processes. The exhibition is being launched by OPW at 7.00pm on Thursday 2 July 2015 and runs until 30 July 2015.

The Main Guard, dating back to 1675, provides a wonderful venue for the this exciting collaborative project. Over the years, the printmaking media and disciplines have often led naturally to collaborative efforts as artists have relied on master printers’ expertise and equipment to produce many successful and famous results. The PLAN A + PLAN B project proves there is great advantages to be gained in working with artists in such collaborative projects to the benefit of the artists themselves and their audiences.”
