Art en Vivo -- Proper Printshop

Proper Printshop is now doing live printing on Thursday evenings in El Paso.

Update (June 23rd, 2016) -- Proper Printshop does Pecha Kucha!!

Proper Printshop pulled 6 print editions for our carpeta, by artists -- Raul MonarrezMatthew PoeVictor MuheddineTino OrtegaNani Chacon, and Chris Bardey.  

After pulling Raul's print, they went down to Mexico City to learn and refine their silk screening techniques at Taller 75 Grados (where we had 10 print editions from our carpeta pulled).  There they learned about "Taller en Vida" workshops at Taller 75 Grados, and decided to start a program like that in El Paso.  We are looking forward to a whole series of wonderful serigraphs by more Southwest and US artists from the "Art en Vivo" series.

There was a KTEP interview with Proper Printshop about the new "Art en Vivo" sessions:

Taller en Vida

"Art in Vivo" is based on the "Taller en Vida" (Live Workshop) sessions by Taller 75 Grados in Mexico City. 

This was a series of live silk screening sessions between 2009 - 2013, where Maestro Arturo Negrete invited the public to bring their designs, and come in and silk screen them.


Dignidad Rebelde of Oakland, California, participated in one of these live workshop sessions in 2013 (Tara McPherson participated in 2010):

Some wonderful work must have been done at the "Taller en Vida" sessions, judging from the posters (many more if you scroll through their blog):

We are bringing Taller 75 Grados to the El Paso Museum of Art on April 14th, 2016 -- 6:30 - 8:30 PM, to do a live demonstration.  A "Taller en Vivo" in El Paso.  

They will also do demonstrations at Proper Printshop, and perhaps other locations in the El 
Paso/Juarez area.

Update:  Edwin Stewart did the 4th "Art in Vivo" at Proper Printshop on February 25, 2016:
