This week was the last weekend of Print Austin. Every year it finishes up with a print exposition. Since the first time I attend Print Austin in 2014, I have never had the opportunity to attend the Print Expo until this year. While I have attended other open artist table sessions at conferences in the past, this one had a different sort of air to it.
While some artists use this as an opportunity to hopefully sell work, that is not really what this event is for. Its more of an opportunity to talk to other print makers or to socialize with friends from other cities. There is a very relaxed sort of air to everything. What I am happy with is that the event coordinators and other artists are very good about publicizing the event. It brings a group of people in that may not have necessarily seen this sort of work before.
