    PrintAustin

    There’s one sure way for art to make a lasting impression: When the marks comprising a work are made transferable and forced into contact with another surface. Then, suddenly, look – born from an industrial matrix still wet with ink, it’s a print! It’s the product of a woodcut, an engraving, an etching. It manifests as a mezzotint, an aquatint, an image of drypoint. Hell, maybe it’s one of those screenprints that concert promoters use for pimping their bands, a bold AF poster created with the same sort of process that, when displayed in a Very Serious Museum, is called serigraphy.

    :

    There are so many different kinds of prints, we confess, that it’s better to direct you to Wikipedia for detailed background. But we wouldn’t be surprised if an eye-popping majority of those kinds – to say nothing of the abundance of subjects depicted, the profusion of styles engaged – were available for viewing during the sixth annual PrintAustin celebration.

    :

    This year’s iteration of PrintAustin runs from January 15 to February 15 and features a wide diversity of events throughout the city – including exhibitions, artist talks, demos, workshops, and more. We’ll be highlighting several of those in your Chronicle's visual arts listings as the fest continues, of course, so keep your eyes peeled this-a-way.

    Through Feb. 15

    Wander

    Austin's innovative Art In Public Places project has conjured up an excellent choose-your-own-adventure sort of experience that incorporates actual sculpture on display around our urban hub. Roam the streets, roam the art, deep in the heart of Texas.

    Art In Public Places: Launchpad

    Have you always wanted to create a work of public art for Austin but weren't sure how to get started? LaunchPAD is a new program that pairs emerging through mid-career public artists with those already established in the field to work together on artwork for the City of Austin. Through the partnership, you'll work on everything from materials research and fabrication to public outreach, while providing a service doing what you love. Also, $15,000 for your work on the project. See website for details.
