PrintHouston 2011

The members of PrintMatters have rolled up our sleeves and are busy organizing and promoting the first ever PrintHouston. This month-long celebration of the art of the print is scheduled for June 2011. We have three major events planned. Hot Houston, Cool Prints, two juried exhibitions at the Museum of Printing History, will kick off the month on June 2. On Saturday, June 11, Art Supply on Main will host an all-day steamroller and “dance-the-prints” event, Rockin’ Rollin’ Prints. The Midtown Management District is a promotional partner for the event. We are also planning a series of lectures about printmaking.

The model for PrintHouston is Philagrafika. A citywide, international contemporary art event, Philagrafika featured printmaking artists from throughout the US. The event received extensive national attention and drew over 7,000 visitors to Philadelphia this past spring. If Philadelphia can do this, so can Houston!
