The collaborative studio Jill & Gill, made up of illustrator Jill Deering and printmaker Gillian Henderson, celebrate their first birthday in business together with the launch of their first solo show dedicated to fashion icon Iris Apfel. The first exhibition for the duo, will see them design and create 25 unique screen printed artworks.
Join Jill & Gill for a special Saturday screening of the documentary Iris in the Sky Room. Iris pairs the late director Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, a ninety-six-year-old fashion icon and outsize presence on the New York fashion scene.
On the day Jill & Gill will also be taking the opportunity to screen a special process video of their work created by KiIlig Productions and will do a special Q&A session about their work.
The prints, a portrait of Iris Apfel, will embody her colourful style and sophistication, with a playfully sense of humour to match. Each limited edition print will be printed on 300gsm cotton paper, with each layer of the image screen-printed in a multitude of finishes and hand embellishments, informed by her eclectic permutations of designer clothing and exotic accessories.
The prints will be available to purchase at the exhibition and from the Jill & Gill website.
Tickets limited to one per person and available through www.eventbrite.ie
