experience contemporary printmaking

Programs

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 (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  will be juried by Delita Martin and presented as a virtual exhibit starting January 15, 2021 with virtual programming meant to highlight the work of selected artists.

PrintEXPO

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 that is made up of artist talks, demos, workshops, and other print-related discussions. Our PrintEXPO line up will be released in January. For more information on our open call for participants, click here.
