The Stoney Road Press exhibition at Siamsa Tíre will showcase a small sample of 15 years of collaborations with artists at their studio in Dublin’s Docklands.
Over 40 painters and sculptors have worked with Stoney Road through the years on a variety of projects, resulting in a wonderful portfolio of limited edition prints, letterpress books, sculptures and tapestries. The exhibition will include works by Richard Gorman, Donald Teskey and Dorothy Cross
There is a tremendous sense of substance to pretty much everything Stoney Road Press has done - even though each project is quite different in character. Stoney Road manages to reinvent itself around each new artist's project.” Aidan Dunne, The Irish Times:
Stoney Road Press was set up by David O’Donoghue and James O’Nolan in 2001. They have been collaborating with Irish artists for 15 years and have worked with many of the established artists in Ireland during that time.
Stoney Road Press is the only Irish member of the IFPDA (International Fine Print Dealers’ Association) which allows them to exhibit at Print Fairs in New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Portland. In addition to the portfolio of limited edition prints, Stoney Road Press also produce letterpress books, sculptures and tapestries.
The most recent book made at the studio was ’16’ - a collaboration between Stoney Road Press, An Post and Poetry Ireland. It contains newly commissioned art and poetry alongside historical poems from the time of the rising in Ireland. ’16’ was presented by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny on behalf of the Irish people to the President Barack Obama on Saint Patrick’s Day in the White House this year. ’16' is on permanent display in the GPO Witness History Museum in Dublin.
