What's for Dessert?

We are showing 30 new prints that essentially were made since our show went up at the El Paso Museum of Art last January.  The "Dessert Triangle" opened the night of Thursday, May 19th -- 6 - 9 PM -- at Proper Printshop in El Paso (800 Montana Avenue).  It stayed up for two weeks, coming down on June 3rd.

Also we are showing the prints that we bought in Houston last month, at the "It Came from the Bayou" print fair at Saint. Arnolds' Brewery.

Our pop-up show was side busting on Mitsu Overstreet's live printing during, during "Art in Vivo."

The goal of the "Dessert Triangle" was to collect 30 prints that have been done since our exhibit went up at the El Paso Museum of Art last January.   The printmakers did not have to be the same artists that participated in the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta, nor did the prints have to be editions.  We just wanted to encourage and boost printmaking.  Hopefully our effort was just a beginning, and the best prints are yet to come.

I collected the following 28 prints from 28 artists, and hung them for the Dessert Triangle pop-up show on May 19th.

In addition to the above artists, we are co-opting the 16 prints done by Proper Printshop from the Art en Vivo events on Thursday nights since February 4th :

28 + 16 = 44 prints, stretching our goal by 14 prints!

There is a great YouTube video online, of Omar Gonzales printing a bigger version of his "Diamondback Cowboy" print (big enough for steam roller printing) using an Iron Frog glass print baren.
