Meitheal Eitseála started out as a group of artists who came together to learn the art of etching under the masterful eye of Niall Naessens. We have since organised many exhibitions, workshops, artists talks and open studio events in the print studio we opened in Dingle. We are no longer a formal group since this central workshop had to close but we still touch base with each other from time to time to discuss projects and problems. This exhibition is the result of one of those discussions. We wanted to show what we’ve been working on and, with a few other artists, who also work in fine art printmaking in West Kerry, to show the wide variety of techniques and expression used by printmakers. We hope you enjoy the show.

Thosnaigh Meitheal Eitseála amach mar ghrúpa ealaíontóirí a tháinig le chéile chun ceárd na heitseála a fhoghlaim fé shúil mháistriúil Niall Naessens. Ó shin i leith tá cuid mhór taispeántaisí, ceardlann, cainteanna ealaíontóra agus imeachtaí stiúdió oscailte eagraithe againn sa stiúdió priontála a d’osclaíomar sa Daingean. Nílimid le chéile mar ghrúpa foirméalta a thuilleadh ó bhí ar an stiúdió úd dúnadh, ach bímid fós i dteagmháil lena chéile go mion minic chun tionscnaimh agus fadhbanna a phlé. Eascraíonn an taispeántas seo as ceann dos na babhtaí teagmhála sin. Bhí fonn orainn taispeáint go bhfuilimid ag obair linn agus, i dteannta roinnt ealaíontóirí eile a oibríonn i réimse an phriontáil ealaíne i gCorca Dhuibhne, cuid dos na teicnící agus módhanna léirithe iomadúla a úsáidteann lucht déanta priontaí a chur ós comhair bhur súile. Tá súil againn go mbainfidh sibh súp as an seó.
