Join Creative Spark for an Exciting Project Launching this World Book Day

Dundalk, Ireland – March 2, 2023 – Creative Spark is pleased to announce an exciting project launching this World Book Day, March 2nd at 6pm in Dundalk Library. The project brings together fifteen local artists who have each created a unique handmade artist book in response to the collection at the Louth Archives under the theme of the “Decade of Centenaries”.

The artists, who are members of the Creative Spark Print Studio and the group Art as Exchange, have utilized a variety of techniques such as sculptural forms, folded pages, drawings, and collages to create these one-of-a-kind works of art.

The project will be displayed on a large bookshelf shaped like a book, and visitors will have the opportunity to browse through each artist’s book. This project celebrates creativity and the power of storytelling through art, showcasing the unique perspectives of local artists and their response to the Louth Archives’ collection.

Funded under the Louth County Council Decade of Centenaries Programme for 2022 which in itself is funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media through their Decade of Centenaries National Programme.
