The Design Loft in Powerscourt House is thrilled to announce the “Artist in Residence” programme – a brand new series of exhibitions by contemporary Irish artists.

Artist in Residence


Pencil: Fifty Shades of Grey

An exhibition of new work by Orla Walsh

Our first exhibition features the work of Orla Walsh, who is well known for her pop art canvases depicting Heinz, Tayto and Guinness products. This time, Orla brings an entirely new collection of fabulous large-format pencil sketches – each one taking 195 hours to create!
