Contemporary Mexican Maestros Print Exhibition in Albuquerque

From Behind the Wall  --
Prints from Contemporary Mexican Maestros

We will be showing the Mexican prints we have collected in the last 3 years at Remarque/New Grounds Print Workshop in Albuquerque  -- 3812 East Central (near Carlisle).

  • Opening on First Friday, August 4th, 2017, from 5 - 8 pm.

This exhibition runs until the 26th of August. Gallery hours -- Friday and Saturday, 10 am  - 6 pm, and by appointment.

Since the beginning, we have been facing south, feeling the pull and influence of Mexican prints.  Almost half the prints from the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta were made in Mexico -- at Taller 75 Grados, Taller Grafica Libre, and La Ceiba Grafica.

All along we have been collecting from young Mexican printmakers -- there is an explosion of activity from Mexican printmakers under 40 years old.

So it gives us great pleasure to show contemporary prints from mostly young Mexican masters.  Though we did show a few Mexican prints with Southwestern works last April in Albuquerque, this exhibition is dedicated entirely to

Moreover, we have shown our prints in Puebla, Oaxaca, and Mexico City, to an enthusiastic response.

It would be great to see more contemporary Mexican prints in the United States in the future, and perhaps we will enjoy the privilege of showing some of our prints down there as well.

Paradox Art Bus
in El Paso

Laura Turon will be introducing her traveling art bus -- Paradox -- at the El Paso Museum of Art during the Last Thursdays artwalk, July 27th.  Her artwork is also being printed live at the Art en Vivo event by Proper Printshop that night.

I think mobile art galleries are perfect for showing prints!  Here are some other mobile art galleries.

Also showing prints on Last Thursday in El Paso:
