Elisabet Ney Museum gives Austin’s world-class press its historic due
Arts Story  January 10, 2019, by Robert Faires
"...But hey, New Austin can't always be bothered with how many decades of cultural contributions you've made – not when there is land to be sold and condos to be built. So just as Flatbed Press hits the big 3-0 in 2019, it's being ushered out of its headquarters for the past 20 of those 30 years...."

“James Surls: Man on Edge” at Flatbed
The prints by this renowned Texas artist are like portals to other worlds, revealing rapturous visions and terrifying cosmic disturbances
Arts Review  February 1, 2018, by Melany Jean
"...A fellow University of Houston student remembered one mid-1970s class with James Surls in a conversation with the Houston Chronicle: "We all looked up one day to find James Surls walking in the door with a chain saw." Calling him a shaman, the artist recalled Surls transforming a fallen tree into a snarling dog. Precisely this clever energy is wrought in Surls' prints, an enigmatic rupture and a spiritual construction, a collection of which are on display at Flatbed Press...."

Arts Story  June 13, 2003, by Madeline Irvine
"...Each resulting artifact has a different life span; grocery lists and newspapers are momentary compared to great books, and signatures on a marriage license or a mortgage live longer than those on checks. Just as rocks and fossils contain much of the history of the earth, the union of ink and paper, whether entered by hand or printed on a press, contains much of the history of the man-made world...."
