TANA Spring 2015 Exhibition: International Print Exchange

Posted on May 18, 2015


TANA is pleased to feature two Southwest printmaking collectives, Horned Toad Prints from El Paso, TX, and YayBig Prints from Tucson, AZ. Last year, TANA artists Malaquias Montoya and Maceo Montoya participated in the 2014 International Print Exchange, which has traveled from Mexico across the Southwest and now California. Featuring over 50 artists working in a variety of printmaking mediums including silkscreen, lithography, linoleum cut, and engraving, all three print workshops celebrate the communal aspect of printmaking: creating multiples to share, distribute, and exchange. A special thanks to Manuel Guerra of Horned Toad Prints and Karl Whitaker of YayBig Prints, TANA is excited to present this important collaboration.

We will also be featuring the work of participants in TANA’s Spring 2015 Workshop. Come join us for food, music, art, and community!
