Arturo Negrete and Taller 75 Grados are creating serigraph masterpieces daily in Mexico City. They pulled all the prints in this ACE Barbershop exhibition, and a third of our editions for the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta.

Arturo Negrete has really boosted our Desert Triangle Print Carpeta, and also serigraphy in the Southwest and other parts of the US this year, 2016:

Some of our Desert Triangle prints
were hung at the 2016 anniversary celebration

 Proper Printshop from El Paso, went down to learn silk screening from Taller 75 Grados (and then pulled 6 print editions for our Desert Triangle Print Carpeta).  Proper then created Art en Vida, where they are doing live printing events every Thursday, of work from a different artist.  Those prints (what they have of 2016 so far) are showing in Mexico City right now, November, at the Zagal Factory Store, located on the fringe of the main Alameda park in Mexico City.

Earlier this year (August)

Proper Printshop of El Paso, modeled their Art en Vivo series after the Taller en Vida events in Mexico City (2009-2013), where Arturo invited the public to his studio -- Taller 75 Grados -- and silk screened their artwork during live printing events.

later became part of the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta

Not one of the shows we put on, Mike Kimball at the 66 Gallery in Albuquerque (4009 Central Ave NE) has an etching show running in November, concurrent with our other print shows.

It all started at ACE.  We had our first print show at Ace Barbershop during the month of July, 2012.
