Ancient Roots: Making Art in Ireland

Posted on July 13th, 2016



A rainless (!) ten days on the remote Western coast of Ireland at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation inspired our group (7 of us from Peregrine Press, 1 from Ireland, 1 from Iceland) to respond to the ancient stone circles, burial mounds and dolmens. Here where the sea meets land crisscrossed by ancient walls and tilled fields my soul connected with my own maternal roots and the spiritual resolve of the Irish people. I learned non-toxic techniques of printmaking from Catherine Kernan and loved the time with friends making art together.
