With the new year comes a variety of new opportunities to celebrate the arts and culture that make our city such a great place to live and work. This month we’re dedicating our January Blogs to share insight about Austin’s long-standing and nationally recognized independent fine art printmaking scene.
Thanks to lots of energy by many or our visual arts, those whose artistry is in printmaking in particular, there’s a new celebration entitled “PRINT AUSTIN” underway now through February as well that showcases some of the finest renown print collections, printmaking programs and more that welcome all of us to enjoy.
To get you started, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite events from Print Austin’s website and will share our synopsis through this blog and our next blog that will be published later this month.
Take time this winter to truly enjoy some of the finest artistry that is wrapped around our own apartment community at LeMontreaux in Austin.
