2nd Impression | Round Rock Prints
Exhibit Dates: January 12- March 11, 2022
For the third consecutive year, the Downtowner Gallery is participating in the annual Print Austin art event, in which area-wide locations showcase the art of printmaking.
In printmaking so much of the creative process takes place before ink ever touches paper. Even after all that planning, with all the specific skills and equipment, the outcome can be varied by the way the artist pulls the print.
The beauty of the printmaking process is the ability to create multiple originals. In this show, we invite the viewer for a closer view to appreciate the nuances that make this art form so unique; ultimately to understand why each print is an original in its’ own right. Visiting the Downtowner Gallery, you will see two of “the same” prints side by side so that you can compare the distinctions. They’re not the same after all; in fact, some are remarkably different. The invited exhibit jurors for this exhibit were artists Ernie Wood and NJ Weaver. These jurors have also contributed artwork to this group exhibition.
All art is available for purchase, unless otherwise specified. We thank you for supporting our local artists with your purchases from the Downtowner Gallery.
This exhibit also includes an educational display offering insight into one artist’s printmaking process – with examples of Ernie Woods’ proofs and carved block, along with one completed artwork from his print series.
Downtowner Gallery is an art gallery and vibrant public venue that values, promotes, and supports artistic expression.
Envisioned as a gathering place for creativity and the arts in its many forms, we welcome everyone to wander through our doors to kindle their sense of wonder. We host art exhibitions, educational opportunities, and events, setting the scene for meaningful interactions among artists, students, and community audiences.
