Francisco Delgado at Art Avenue
for the Flatbed Book Signing
The previous Thursday (June 22), Art Avenue had a book signing event for Flatbed Press, the big print shop and print publishers of Austin, Texas. They were highlighting artists with El Paso connections that had printed at Flatbed -- Luis Jimenez, Alice Leora Briggs, Ricky Armendariz, Celia Muñoz , and Suzi Davidoff.
Francisco Delgado,of the Desert Triangle Carpeta, recently made lithograph prints at Flatbed Press in Austin, but after the book was published. May we continue to send El Paso artists to do fine art prints at Flatbed Press, because El Paso has talent!
