Ground Zero Printmakers Studio is very pleased to present his work in conjunction with their exhibition, "Victoria, Inside Out" at Xchanges Gallery.

Maurice Orr lives and works at his studio in Ballymoney, Ireland.  He has been awarded numerous international residencies, including the prestigious Arts Council of Northern Ireland's residency at the Banff Centre in Alberta.
