Austin Summary

Desert Triangle Print Carpeta exhibition at Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin:
January 26 – May 27, 2018 (Closed February 12 – March 1  -- note, the closure dates have been reduced) 

We had a great opening at Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin on January 26, 2018!!! It was good to take the Desert Triangle out of Mountain Time.

We also participated in PRINT AUSTIN 2018, and enjoyed the other print exhibits!

 The below is a summary of all the blog entries we made while showing prints in Austin:


Many Desert Triangle artists attended the opening:  Francisco Delgado, Los Dos, Jellyfish, Henry Morales, Tanya Rich, Krrrl, and David Figueroa who did all the augmented reality enhancements.  Also Arturo Negrete of Taller 75 Grados in Mexico City; his studio produced a 3rd of the Desert Triangle prints.

UPDATE (March 6):

The Desert Triangle Print Carpeta exhibition at Mexic-Arte, is listed in the West Austin Studio Tour, May 12 -13, and 19 -20.  Our exhibition should be listed in their physical catalog too.

NoteFlatbed Press, aka Flatbed World Headquarters, the center of the printmaking community, lost their lease, and will be looking to relocate by February, 2019... but The Road Goes on Forever...

THE Magazine of Santa Fe did an article about the art scene in Austin, in the April 2018 issue.

UPDATE: Tanya retrieved the prints from Mexic-Arte Museum on May 30th, 2018.  We are very grateful that they exhibited our prints, and thank director Sylvia Orozco, curator Rebecca Gomez and the whole crew very much.  Everything went so smoothly.

Sigh.  The empty gallery.

Cause ... in Austin, and with prints,
the party never ends!
