The Municipal Gallery in dlr LexIcon, Dún Laoghaire is delighted to host the prestigious 158th International Print Exhibition from the Royal Photographic Society. 

Striking images of a huge variety of subjects by international photographers, from portraits to landscapes to wildlife, will give visitors an insight into life around the world. The exhibition will open on 11 May and continue until 22 June.

The International Print Exhibition is the worlds oldest and longest-running exhibition of its kind. It has been held almost every year since the Society was founded in 1853. This year the competition received nearly 5,000 entries from students, amateurs and professionals in 56 countries worldwide and this unique selection of winning images will capture your imagination!

The Learning Programme for this exhibition has lots of offer. There will be free photographic reviews for serious amateurs with the Gallery of Photography. We will be running a photographic competition to celebrate the exhibition as well as special talks and tours.

This exhibition is part of the annual Municipal Gallery programme organised by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Arts Office.
