Flatbed Press is pleased to present Hard Luck Honky Tonk (March 15-April 30), an exhibition of fine art screen prints from iconic Houston-based gig poster artist and graphic designer Carlos Hernandez. An opening reception will take place the evening of March 18, 6-8pm.
From small town honky tonks to big city dance halls, the same type of hard luck personas are found. Carlos Hernandez deftly blends these iconic characters with his own style of metal make-up, masks, skeletons, or rock and roll horror, bringing forward their otherwise hidden hard luck stories and honky tonk dreams.
Carlos will have a selection of his gig poster and commemorative flatstock included in this exhibition. He is an award winning graphic designer who has worked with companies such as Austin City Limits and St. Arnold’s Brewery. He is a founding partner of Burning Bones Press, a full service publisher and print studio in Houston, Texas.
