PRINTAUSTIN: Jan 15-Feb 15, 2018


PrintAustin's mission to the Austin art community and galleries is to share our enthusiasm for printmaking by helping galleries curate, exhibit, and promote works on paper and to engage a wider audience through in-house artist talks, signings, panels, printmaking demonstrations, and print-focused art happenings.

Cathy Savage is a multi-media artist but, when asked about her work, describes herself as a printmaker. She’s in love with the printmaking process, especially the delightful surprises each state often brings. She gravitates towards the textural effects of collagraphs finding platemaking is only limited by one’s imagination. Cathy has exhibited throughout the US but primarily in Austin, and celebrated her first solo show at StoneMetal Press in 2010. Honors include Juror’s Award of Excellence from the Bering James Gallery in Houston as well as statements and reproductions of her work in the Austin-American Statesman and the Austin Chronicle. Cathy received a BS in Studio Art from Florida State University.

Elvia Perrin received her MFA from the University of North Texas at Denton in 2002. She was a collaborator, printer and artist at Flatbed Press + Gallery in Austin, Texas for seven years. She has taught printmaking and foundation courses locally for over a decade. She currently is a Lecturer of Art at Texas State University and working in her own printmaking studio. Elvia is the Founding Executive Director: PrintAustin, a city-wide contemporary print event. She has collaborated with Retailers Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel and TRNK, NY and has shown nationally and internationally. Elvia is currently represented by Wally Workman Gallery and  lives in Austin, Texas.
