Local artist Constance Short has nailed her colours to the mast and has created two prints to celebrate the Ger's hugely successful season.
The prints, entitled The Ger and The Gers 2013, on currently on display in the Credit Union, Blackrock, until noon on Saturday December 21st.
Coming as she does from a GAA family, Constance knows the passions felt when a team is doing well. So she decided to commemorate the success fo the men and the girls' teams from The Gers in her adopted parish with these limited edition prints.
These striking lino cut prints are printed on fine Japanese paper which can be rolled up and posted to loved ones abroad, she points out.
Constance is one of the leading exponents of relief print in Ireland especially in its most well known form: the linocut. She has exhibited worldwide and her New York exhibition in the prestigious gallery SOHO20 made the critics recommended listings in The New Your Times twice during the run of the show.
Her work was recently included with that of approximately 100 artists for the exhibition and catalogue 'Into The Light' to celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Irish Arts Councils in 2012.
Her artwork is in the collection of The Irish Arts Council, The Northern Irish Arts Council, Croke Park and many private collections.
