Live Tortilla Press printing, Skateboard Press printing, and embossed corn tortilla making on Sunday July 10, 10-4 at PRINTED MATTER #3, Railyard Santa Fe
July 10-24, 2022
For the past several years, arts organizer Krrrl has been working with groups of artists in New Mexico, El Paso, Texas, Tuscon, Arizona; and in Ciudad Juarez, Guadalajara, and Oaxaca, Mexico on a series of international print exchanges and exhibitions. Axle is pleased to present prints from this series. We will also host Krrl and collaborators for a live printmaking session using a modified tortilla press to create prints from linocuts. His Tortilla Press was conceived by the Tres Gatos group, project collaborators from Guadalajara, and built by Joseph Velasquez of Drive By Press
On Sunday, July 10, Axle will also be making fresh tortillas, embossed with a linocut process, cooked and served warm on site.
The exhibition and demonstration are part of Tim Jag's PRINTED MATTER printmaking fair taking place in the Santa Fe Railyard on July 10, from 10 am-4pm, involving many local printmakers showing, selling, and demonstrating myriad printmaking processes in use today.
