With three professional print shops, nationally recognized university printmaking programs, internationally acclaimed print collections, and a thriving printmaking community, Austin is a hub for printmaking in Texas. PrintAustin is an Austin based non-profit dedicated to celebrating the art of printmaking and print collecting in Austin, and their annual celebration PRINTAUSTIN 2017 brings together some of the best in contemporary and traditional printmaking today. This year’s event welcomes new programming, fresh galleries and some must see-print exhibitions. PrintAustin’s mission to the Austin art community and galleries is to share their enthusiasm for printmaking by helping galleries curate, exhibit, and promote works on paper, and to engage a wider audience through in-house artist talks, signings, panels, printmaking demonstrations, and print-focused art happenings.
The PrintAustin team is working with organizations and individuals throughout the Austin visual arts community to showcase fine art prints during PRINTAUSTIN 2017, happening January 15-February 15. For more information on the various galleries, workshops, exhibits and events, visit printaustin.org.
