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. 

Calls for our 2025 festival will be opening in September. Be sure to follow us on Instagram for updates! 

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.” 

Prints are due May 31, 2024. We will be exhibiting prints at Print Rodeo in September, on our IG feed, and in our shop.
