To promote traditional and non-traditional printmaking, encourage print collecting, and further the professional growth of our members.
ROCKIN' ROLLIN' PRINTS 2016 was another great success!
Thank you to all that came to participate ON SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2016 AT SAINT ARNOLD BREWING COMPANY.
Rockin' Rollin' Prints is an annual themed steamroller printing event organized by PrintMatters. The much-anticipated all day art event serves as a unique opportunity for printmakers and admirers to celebrate printmaking. Hundreds gather and watch as artists from all parts of the grand state of Texas line up to get their over-sized woodblocks inked and printed under the drum of a 2-ton steamroller. As each block is printed it is then hung for print-goers to enjoy in an exhibition of Texas-sized prints along with a cold Houstonian brew and rockin' tunes at the St. Arnold's beer hall.
A curated exhibition of some of the prints from the 2016 steamroller event will be held by Williams Tower Gallery Curator, Sally Sprout, from June 9 - July 15, 2016 at Williams Tower Gallery. A special opening reception will be held Wednesday, June 8, 2016 from 6 - 8:30pm.
Printmatters teaching children at bayou city art festival 2016
PrintMatters members and friends came together as volunteer teachers to pass on the art of printmaking to Houston's youth at BCAF!
Members and friends of PrintMatters Houston taught over 525 children (and some parents) how to create monoprints in the PrintMatters creative zone tent in Memorial Park this past weekend of April 29th - May 1st. We as an organization could not be happier to have met so many Houston neighbors introducing what we hope will be a strong new community/education program from our PrintMatters
Thank you to everyone that made this community event a complete success!
