Border Promise -- Steamroller Prints Revisted

BorderǀPromise  -- a PRINT AUSTIN event at the Elisabet Ney Museum, February 3rd and 4th, 2018.

hung fabric prints they did at past steamroller print events,
and made large "dance prints" in Austin

The Desert Triangle Print Carpeta was conceived during the Chalk the Block 2014 arts festival.  During that event, some of the El Paso printmakers in the Desert Triangle, participated in the steamroller printing event with Luis Valderas and Kim Bishop.  So  we find it very poetic to meet them again during PRINT AUSTIN 2018, going full circle, almost 4 years later.  Some of the fabric prints done in El Paso were on display outside the Elisabet Ney Museum during the event.

Not the last dance -- Luis Valderas, Kim Bishop, Paul Karam  and Luis Garza plan to make even more large prints this way, and display them at the border.  We hope to see them again in the future.
