Open Calls

Each year as part of our festival (January 15-February 15), we offer opportunities for artists and galleries to exhibit and discuss their work and printmaking processes. We have begun to expand our programming outside of that window. Open calls can be found below. 


Are you in the Greater Austin Area and interested in being part of PrintAustin’s festival by holding print-related event(s) during January 15-February 15 ? Should you wish to hold an event such as an exhibit, panel discussion, or demo during this time period, we will  help you promote your event via our email announcements, social media, and our city-distributed printed brochure. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at info@printaustin.org and include your phone number and a good time to call.  

Celeste de Luna. PrintAustin’s 2021 Trade Portfolio


Inspired by the collaborative tradition and democratic nature of printmaking, our Trade Portfolio is an opportunity for artists to participate in a print exchange. Artists complete an edition of 12 prints and receive a portfolio of 10 collated prints from the other participants. PrintAustin retains two prints from each edition, which will be sold to benefit our programming. Theme: none, however, the paper size is restricted to 12×12.”
