The Backwater Artists Group, Cork Printmakers
Guided tour at 1pm and at 2pm
Backwater Artists Group, Cork Printmakers and the Lavit Gallery are located on Wandesford Quay. This three-bay, four-storey warehouse was originally built around 1840 and restored in 1995. Its first use was as a grain store, probably for the nearby distillery. Subsequently it became a timber yard and Coleman’s Printers.
Backwater Artists Group is an artist’s studio complex that offers facilities for artists to produce and present art. Cork Printmakers is a print studio that offers artists and the public a creative and technical environment in which to make and engage with art. The Lavit Gallery showcases art made by Cork based and national artists.
A guided tour of the historic aspects of the building as well as the functionality and the repurposing of the heritage spaces will take place at 1pm and at 2pm.
