Press Release

Desert Triangle Print Carpeta

Inspired by Mexican American serigraphs, and psychedelic posters, an art agitator commissioned 30 Southwestern artists to create large, colorful prints, of the kind that "want to get out of the studio" and be shared.  The artists -- from points around Tucson, Albuquerque, and El Paso -- deliver a variety of visions, as the theme was open. 12 of those printmakers are from Tucson, including: Joe Marshall, Cristina Cardenas, Martin Quintanilla, Mykl Wells, Ruben Urrea Moreno, Rudy Flores, Gonzalo Espinosa, Tanya Rich, Rogo, Mark Christian, Lauren Moran and Michael Contreras.

The prints were produced in 14 different studios, including the Tucson Community Print Shop and the Gloo Factory in Tucson; and "Taller 75 Grados" in Mexico City.

This collection is on exhibit at the Contreras Gallery (110 E 6th STREET), near downtown Tucson, February 6 - 27.  The opening is during the First Saturday Art Walk, Feb 6, from 6 - 9 PM.    www.contrerashousefineart.com
