This week two of our departments will be embarking on their separate journeys to conferences across the nation.

Printmaking Professor Ryan O’Malley‘s printmaking crew, Full Court Press, will be traveling to his hometown of Laramie, Wyoming to the Mid American Printmakers Council Conference. There, they will attend panels, demonstrations, and open portfolio sessions.

Sculpture Professor Leticia Bajuyo and her team of women sculptors will be making their way to Knoxville, Tennessee to attend the Mid-South Sculpture Alliance Sculpture Conference: Knoxville 2018. Professor Bajuyo is one of the board members of the MSA and received her MFA at The University of Tennessee-Knoxville, where the conference will be hosted this year. The conference will host a number of artist panels and presentations, workshops,  demonstrations, and exhibitions both on campus and at various local galleries.

Exhibition – Clarissa Gonzalez

Graduate Student Clarissa Gonzalez prints were included in an exhibition titled SOLAR at the Art.Science.Gallery in Austin, Texas.

SOLAR featured artwork in the printmaking medium about the sun, made by our sun (as in solar printmaking, cyanotyping, or printing with photosensitive inks) or for the sun (about sun- or star-related cultural and natural history). The exhibit was the featured exhibit for the 2018 PrintAustin -the annual printmaking festival.

January 15 – February 15, 2018

Solo Exhibition – Silas Breaux

Silas Breaux: Solo Exhibition – Misremembrance,2018

Silas Breaux, Center for Arts Building Supervisor, will be exhibiting a solo exhibition of recent artworks at Slugfest Printmaking Workshop & Gallery in Austin, Texas.

Exhibition Dates: January 20th – February 17, 2018

Silas Breaux’s work stems from his observations of the relationship between natural and built environments. Whether making intaglio plates with common construction supplies or using  prints as building materials in sculptural forms, he abstracts and distills the relationship to its visual essence.

PrintAustin’s mission to the Austin art community and galleries is to share our enthusiasm for printmaking by helping galleries curate, exhibit, and promote works on paper, and to engage a wider audience through in-house artist talks, signings, panels, printmaking demonstrations, and print focused art happenings.
