Meanwhile, PRINT AUSTIN has been going on since January 15th:
in the door of the GreyDuck Gallery--
She is one of the Print Austin founders
"Untitled (The Void)"
flanked by the Amazing Hancock Brothers,
and Carlos Hernandez on the right,
(the printmakers of the Kowboyz and Monsters exhibition,
which opened the night before)
I also regret missing the Rebolloso Print Studio pop-up exhibition the night before. However, Logan Hill of that pop-up show did show up for the Print Austin Contemporary Print opening:
Francisco Delgado had a small litho print for sale at Flatbed Press, though it is hard to see in the photo below:
The inner sanctum of Flatbed Press,
with a small Francisco Delgado for sale in the stacks!
A new edition next to Flatbed Press,
was the Austin Book Arts Center
Practically next door to Flatbed Press, there was an opening at Slugfest Printmaking, run by Margaret Simpson and Tom Druecker:
Work by Silas Breaux
I love the Slugfest printmaking studio
Tom Huck spotting at Slugfest!
On Sunday, January 21, I really enjoyed the print talk by the women of the ROUX exhibition -- Ann “Sole Sister” Johnson, Rabéa Ballin, Delita Martin (Lovie Olivia was unable to attend), at the Prizer Arts and Letters studio in East Austin:
in the middle, talking about their prints in the exhibition --
the large print in the back is by Delita Martin
Dr Paul Laidler, of the University of West England, gave a lecture in the Art Building at the University of Texas. He spoke about practice, result oriented print making research (vs question oriented). He is a Senior Research Fellow of the Centre for Fine Print Research.
His website is Just Press P, and on January 26th, there is an opening at the University of Texas, of the print show he curated with the same name -- Just Press Print.
Dr Paul Laidler discussing the reiterations
of his experimental reproduction art process,
passing his image back and forth,
from England to artists in Dafen, China
"Latino Artists in Printmaking" -- we missed the opening at La Peña on January 13th, but we really enjoyed the exhibition!
Outside print in the window of La Peña
of Puebla, Mexico
shows off the Paul Del Bosque serigraph
that she sold me
