Just the Tip -- El Paso in Austin

We are taking the Desert Triangle prints from El Paso and Juarez to Austin, for the "Just the Tip" (of the iceberg) "pop-up/happening" on Saturday, November 19th -- 7 - 11PM, during the East Austin Studio Tour.

We sold prints by Cimi Alvarado, Jellyfish, Los Dos, Federico Villalba, Tino Ortega, and one by Zeke Pena which is not in the Desert Triangle.  Plus we dazzled Austin with the augmented reality of Zeke's Desert Triangle print.  It was a great event!

We also visited Mexic-Arte
while in Austin,
and will donate a Desert Triangle carpeta 
to this museum

During the event we learned about Mercadorama prints from Mexico.

Meanwhile, Los Dos just finished two murals in San Antonio last week on the Hayes Street Bridge, for the Luminaria Contemporary Arts Festival:

We donated one of Francisco Delgado's new lithographs, done at La Ceiba Grafica in Veracruz, to the University of Texas at San Antonio Special Collections  archive.

Starting February 23rd, 2017, we will be showing a collection of new prints at the Purple Gallery in downtown El Paso, constructed around Francisco's print above.  Therefore we bought a great linoleum print from Juan de Dios Mora, who teaches in the University of Texas at San Antonio printmaking department, along with Kent Rush and Humberto Saenz.

We acquired this print

Last year at this time, YayBig Southwest had a print show at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, in Brownsville:
