Venues across the city including galleries, art studios and educational institutions, opened their doors (or computers!) to the public during the PrintAustin festival. 2021 looked different than past years due to necessary accommodations to support health guidelines addressing the pandemic, but the festival still forged ahead. We’re looking forward to more in-person experiences in 2022! 

The Contemporary Print: 5x5

The Contemporary Print: 5x5

The Contemporary Print (TCP) juried exhibition is a survey of traditional printmaking techniques and innovative approaches in contemporary printmaking. Presented in collaboration with Big Medium, TCP: 5×5  2021 was juried by Delita Martin and presented as a virtual exhibit January 15 – February 19. Artist features and interview podcasts with Pine.Copper.Lime. and Studio Noize Podcast are still available on our Blog.


Our annual print fair was reimagined for 2021 as a virtual experience where artists showcase and sell their latest prints online, and attendees can discover techniques and processes via a one-day virtual conference on February 6, 2021. See recorded conference content and artist profiles at printexpo.org.


This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department, and by the Still Water Foundation.
