Press Release – LSLP exhibition launched by Sabina Higgins


The Little Stories Little Prints exhibition was launched on Friday 2 September last by Sabina Higgins.  This is a 1916 Commemorative Visual Arts Project through the medium of Printmaking. Almost fifty Print makers from eight Printmaking Studios around Ireland accepted an invitation to participate in the project, which aims to create awareness of little known events or incidents during or around the time of the Easter Rising in 1916. The artists researched incidents and aspects of life at the time and created little prints in response to their research. The prints, along with their stories are presented in the exhibition. The project was devised and coordinated by Pamela de Brí, in collaboration with the Leinster Printmaking Studio, Clane, Co Kildare and assisted by Studio Manager Margaret Becker. The exhibition runs from September to end of October 2016. A limited edition illustrated publication is available for purchase on request.

The prints, along with the stories, incidents or events that inspired them, can be viewed on the website The project is supported by Co. Kildare Library and Arts Services and Dublin City Libraries. Further information or phone 0876616863
