PRESSE VERTE is a gallery/studio in Collioure, a village in the Languedoc region. Matisse and Andre Derain first arrived there in 1905, stunned by the light, together they created Fauvism. Many others followed.
Felicity McCartan is an Irish artist/print maker who trained in Kensington and Chelsea Art College. She has made her home and work in Collioure. Her prints have been exhibited in Ireland, France, Spain, and the UK. She practises green or non-toxic printing, a method of etching which avoids using acids and harmful solvents in the process.
She will be welcoming visitors to her studio at 3 Rue Rière, Collioure from May 2021. She looks forward to showing her Polymetaal (Leiden) etching press at work.
