Belfast Print Workshop

Belfast Print Workshop is a fine art atelier in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter. Founded in 1977, it is a resource for print artists. Community is at the core of what BPW do, offering tuition, courses and exhibitions to make art accessible to all.
The artists featured in this exhibition are: Declan Byrne – Declan’s recent body of work is woodcut portrait printmaking. Declan has been a member of the Belfast Print Workshop since 2007 and he is based at Flax Art Studios, Havelock House. Dónall Billings - Dónall’s art is influenced by our relationships with each other, ourselves and our environment. He works in paper, sculpture or a combination of both. His work continues to evolve as a means of self-expression. Bill Penney - Bill recently retired after 25 years lecturing in Belfast School of Art. His work has won prizes in Germany, South Korea and Ireland. He will be Artist in Residence in Memorial University in Newfoundland in September 2021. Bill’s work deals with the rejected and ignored, with brash colours requiring the viewer to stop, look and consider. Brenda McCafferty – Brenda has returned to the Belfast Print Workshop after 20 years and is experimenting with the media of etching and lino. Her current theme is based around desolate places.

Fiona Ní Mhaoilir – Fiona is an Irish visual artist whose work deals with systems of control: bodily control, border control, institutional control, and creative control. The work shown in this exhibition is an embossed print in support of women’s rights and the Pro-Choice Movement. Joe Mc Fadden – Joe studied Illustration at Belfast College of Art, which included printmaking and typography. He then took an art teachers diploma and became a member of BPW in early 1982. He works in Relief and Intaglio printing.
