Fingal County Council and Graphic Studio Fine Art Print Residency Award 2023

Fingal Arts Office is delighted to announce the Graphic Studio Dublin Fine Art Print Residency Award. As part of the ongoing commitment to professional artists, Fingal County Council Arts Office in partnership with Graphic Studio Dublin is offering two fine art print residencies to professional artists at any stage of their careers, working in any discipline, who are interested in exploring print processes.

The two-week long residencies will provide an ideal environment for the development of a creative project in printmaking and an opportunity to network with other artists. The selected artists will each work with a Master Printmaker and a professional printing team to produce a series of limited-edition prints and the artists proofs will enter the Fingal County Council Municipal Art Collection.  The residency will take place in Autumn 2023, at a date to be agreed with the successful candidates.

To be eligible to apply, applicants must have been born, have studied, or currently reside in the Fingal administrative area. No printmaking experience is necessary.
