Visit: Stone Step Gallery

A new exhibition opens at the Stone Step Gallery this May titled Philadelphia Story. The exhibition tells the story of the relationship between photographer William Smith and the city of Philadelphia and is open to the visitors until May 16th. Stone Step Gallery brings work from some of the world’s greatest contemporary painters, printmakers and photographers to showcase at their new gallery space in country Dublin. We were thrilled to work on the branding for Stone Step Gallery when they opened late last year.
