DUBLIN PORT Print Graphic Stu­dio Gallery, Through the arch, Cope St, Tem­ple Bar Un­til May 26 01-6798021 Un­til last year Dublin’s Graphic Stu­dio was lo­cated deep in Dock­lands, and this ex­hi­bi­tion marks the print work­shop’s long in­volve­ment with Dublin Port and, in­deed, the long-term in­spi­ra­tion that artists have drawn from Dublin Bay. Some 80 artists par­tic­i­pated in a com­pe­ti­tion for work on the theme of Dublin Port. All were of­fered a tour of the port to get an inside view of its ac­tiv­i­ties, and NCAD’s head of print Mike Birtch­nell, the Na­tional Gallery’s print cu­ra­tor Anne Hodge and project man­ager Mary Gal­lagher se­lected work by 18 artists for ex­hi­bi­tion.

A prize fund of €5,000 went to Kelvin Mann (for Red Light­house, above) and (in joint sec­ond place) James McCreary and Philip Mur­phy. Among the other par­tic­i­pants are Brian Lalor, Gwen O’Dowd, Ni­amh Flana­gan, Stephen Lawlor, Niall Naessens, Cliona Doyle, Kather­ine Van Uytreacht, Lina Nor­den­strom, Carmel Ben­son and more. The show was ini­tially seen at the Dublin Port Com­pany in Alexandra Road. AIDAN DUNNE can’T SEE ThaT? caTch This
