Wexford Arts Centre will hold an online printmaking demonstration and a talk with artist Deirdre Meehan-Buttimer on Friday 22nd May as part of Age & Opportunity, Bealtaine at Home 2020. The technique Deirdre will demonstrate is experimental and combines a print and mark-making approach which she has employed in studio work and community projects/workshops/ residencies. Deirdre Meehan-Buttimer is a visual artist based in Wexford. Deirdre’s practice is experimental in nature, driven by an intuitive and curious approach. Her processes are often indexical with a strong photographic/drawing element. She uses non-standard surfaces and everyday objects as ‘mark making’ tools with mixed media. Deirdre has built a strong participatory arts practice. Amongst other projects, she was recently lead artist on the Living Arts Project which is an arts-in-education initiative run by Wexford County Council, Wexford Arts Centre and participating primary schools. In 2019, she was also awarded a Creative Communities Award by Wexford County Council to undertake a project with Wexford Women’s Refuge exploring Coercive Control.
