    Print Austin 2019

    While we've got the space available in our printed year-end listings section, we wanted to alert you to this terrific annual event that happens throughout the city in the latter half of January and the first half of February.

    It's kind of like that whole EAST or WEST celebration of art that goes on – you know? – except that this program is predicated on printmaking in all its many forms and functions.

    Print Austin is spread among galleries and studios all over town (although the soon-to-be-shuttered Flatbed Press is pretty much Ground Zero), and it boasts numerous workshops and parties in addition to the excellent displays, but that last thing is especially why we're giving it this early huzzah: We know that you don't like to miss out on what's best in this city, and Print Austin isn't just an inside-baseball sort of deal for inkstained artisans and their hardcore fans. No, this is also a wealth of highly accessible graphic goodness that's coming up for the regular citizen to enjoy as well, and we'll have more details here for you as this 2019 business gets under way.

    Jan. 15-Feb. 15
