experience contemporary printmaking

Exhibitions, Talks, Demos & Workshops

Venues across the city including galleries, art studios and educational institutions, open their doors (or computers!) to the public during the PrintAustin festival. 2021 will look different than past years due to necessary accommodations to support health guidelines addressing the pandemic, but the festival is still going on. Think of this as an opportunity to see work by-appointment-only basis or from the comfort of your own living room. 

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  is juried by Delita Martin and presented as a virtual exhibit January 15 – February 19 on bigmedium.org. Artist features will be released weekly on our Blog, in collaboration with Pine.Copper.Lime. and Studio Noize Podcast.


Our annual print fair is being reimagined for 2021 as a virtual experience where artists will have the ability to showcase and sell their latest prints online, and attendees can discover techniques and processes via a one-day virtual conference on February 6, 2021. Register today to attend the conference at printexpo.org.
