ESCAPE FROM PRESSURE ISLAND! / by Clarissa Gonzalez

I must write about the closing party for Print Austin, Escape from Pressure Island! This has become a yearly show that Ryan puts on exhibiting print works from students, faculty, and alumni of TAMUCC.  I must say that the show came out really well!

I do have to take a moment and thank Ryan for this one.  None of this would have been possible without him.  He spent all week framing and preparing works to be hung the day before the show.

Ryan and I went to hang the show on Friday. It was important to Ryan to make this show look professional and to be at a higher caliber.  I took the  hanging as a lesson in curation. Some difficult decisions (that I'm not going to mention) had to be made, and sometimes you have to do what is right even if it is not necessarily the nicest decision.  Either way our hard work paid off.
