Southwest Print Fiesta 2017

We drove down to Silver City for the second Southwest Print Fiesta (Sept 1 - 3, 2017) to see what the desert printmakers are up to.  Last year we participated, selling Desert Triangle prints at the Southwest Print Fiesta 2016.

inked the steamroller prints

Several Desert Triangle printmakers made steamroller prints at Chalk the Block in El Paso in 2014.  In fact, it was during that event that the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta was conceived.

Tanline from Tucson was selling prints from their tent.  They printed 4 of the Desert Triangle prints under the name "Tucson Community Workshop."  Currently they sell prints in their Tiny Town store, on 4th Avenue in Tucson:
