To promote traditional and non-traditional printmaking, encourage print collecting, and further the professional growth of our members.
ROCKIN' ROLLIN' PRINTS 2016 will be HELD ON SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2016 FROM 10AM-4PM 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. Come 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.
