Journey through David Hockney's printmaking career. The walls of the Orde Poynton Gallery, Level 2 carry Hockney's large-scale sun-splashed swimming pools. 'I kept looking at the swimming pool; and it's a wonderful subject, water, the light on the water.' – Hockney. This exhibition is free, visit today 10am – 5pm.

In 2015 I printed six monotypes on marbled paper with the intention of doing a series, but I didn't know where to go next. In early 2017 I made this Plexiglas drypoint of an argali sheep skull, but didn't know what to do with that either. Today I'm combining them to finish both ideas. Stay tuned #printmaking#monotype#intaglio#skull#artfun
I miss the smells and sounds of printmaking so much! @tophermackphoto and I saw a wonderful live print demo today at @flatbedpress and I think it's about time I get back into printmaking again 🤔 So much beautiful work at the East Austin Studio Tour ❤️ thank you @bigmediumaustin for putting on such a great event every year! I love looking at all the work, getting inspired and excited about my own work for the new year to come! Keep it up #austinartists 🤗
One of our incredible local artists for Plaid Friday Weekend is Lily, who will be popping up with Oak and Pearl Design at Kostüm Saturday, November 25th from 1-7pm. We interviewed Lily to find out more about her and Oak and Pearl Project so you could get just as excited as we are for this Pop Up! (LINK IN BIO). As always we’ll have free refreshments all weekend as well as boxes and tissue paper for wrapping gifts. Additionally, all first-time NEW customers will get 15% off!*
Testing out different color variations with chine collé today. I'm leaning toward blue with pink but I'm intrigued by the metallic option (which would be torture to print AND to photograph⚡). #chinecolle#printmaking#etching#aquatint
