This exhibit is a collection of prints from Flatbed Press by various artist. Printmaking workshops such as Flatbed are said to have a "personality." From Listening to artists' responses to their work here, their personality seems to consist of two traits. On the personal level,openness and friendliness prevail, with Katherine's down-home style setting the tone. On the aesthetic level, they became known early on for their "Texas Grit" look, exemplified by the editions of artists like James Surls, Terry Allen, and Frank X. Tolbert. As they expanded their range of artists, the gritty look became complicated by prints that were not "Texas Raw," but simply bold in execution, or, large in scale. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
