Pewter has been used in metalworking since ancient times and its relatively low melting (338–446 °F) makes it very easy to work with .  In this workshop, students will press their designs into playdough and then molten pewter will be poured into the molds to create a finished charm or pendant.

Acrylic Printmaking with a Gelli Plate Nov. 8

Instructor Sharon Giles  http://sharongilesart.com

Wednesday, November 8th 10am – 3pm   $45

Artisan’s Studio Gallery, 2825 Valley View Lane #301, Farmers Branch TX https://sites.google.com/site/artisansstudiogallerysite/

To register, contact Judy Harrison – judy.harrison52@gmail.com or call or text 217-898-0826

A $20 deposit is required to reserve your place in the workshop.
You may send payment in part, or the full amount, to the address above Attn. Printmaking Workshop.
This is the list of supplies and paper recommendations that Sharon has provided for her printmaking workshop:
Supplies needed: Acrylic paint and medium, paper, water container, spray bottle, paper towels and other optional tools such as stencils, masks, stamps, and mark-making tools, (brush, scraper, etc). If you have a gelli plate and brayer, please bring those. Please let the instructor know if you need to borrow one.  Bring an apron or wear grunge clothes.
Hot press watercolor paper works well, and inexpensive Strathmore wc paper works. I like the Strathmore Aquarius paper for serious acrylic work. I usually recommend mixed media paper which reminds me of lightweight hot press wc paper. You can get it spiral bound or in pads. Whatever you choose, it should be acid free of course.
For this workshop we will provide basic student grade acrylics for experimenting, but bring any additional colors or artist grade paints if you wish.
Student-grade paper will also be provided – you may also bring any art paper or cloth you want to experiment with.
If you want to purchase your own gel plate gelli arts or gel press brands are recommended.  These can be found at Hobby Lobby and Walmart locally and online at amazon of course. Speedball also has a version, but it is more appropriate for ink than acrylic.
You may also want to bring some tools for creating texture. There is no need to purchase these items, look for objects around your home that will create interesting texture such as corrugated cardboard, bubble wrap, paper/plastic stencils, makeup sponges, Qtips, stamps (foam or rubber). I will provide a kit of some interesting things I’ve collected as well so don’t worry too much about this unless you have a specific idea for something you want to create.
We have plenty of water containers so don’t worry about this item.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the workshop, let me know if you have any questions.

Flatbed Press and Gallery 2830 East MLK Jr Blvd Austin, Texas 78702

Landscapes: Transformed/Transfigured | Sean Caulfield

OPENS TO PUBLIC May 19, 2017

May 19, 2017 from 6 to 8 PM

July 29, 2017

Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm; Saturday noon-5pm

Through installation, sculpture and printmaking Sean Caulfield’s work considers the ways our envi- ronment is transformed by forces of urban and industrial growth. The visual images and environ- ments he creates blur boundaries between the biological and the technological, the organic and the mechanical; they challenge viewers to consider the implications of this merging.

“Central to my work is the role that society, community and the individual has in the moment of change. Focusing on broader themes of mutation, metamorphosis, and regeneration involving both the landscape and the individuals that inhabit it, I aim to raise challenging questions for viewers about the role they play. Ultimately, my work focuses on the idea that crisis and change – whether it be environmental, political, or personal – can be a significant and positive catalyst for rebirth, growth and courage.” Sean Caulfield

March 17, 2017 from 6 to 8 PM



March 17, 2017

Flatbed Press http://www.flatbedpress.com/


Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm; Saturday noon-5pm

Flatbed Press is pleased to present New Cuban Color: Prints by Limonta, Mederos, and Valdes in the O2 Project Gallery space. Organized by Alfredo Felipe Valdes, works in this exhibition utilize the human form as a symbolic vehicle to explore moments of human experience: birth, death, love, or the idea of origin and guilt in our Western tradition. From the intricately textured collagraphs of Isolina Limonta to the expressive and painterly monoprints of Yordanis Garmendia Mederos and Alfredo Felipe Valdes, this exhibition captures a wonderful glimpse of the contemporary printmaking happening in Cuba today.

Jay Bolotin: The Book of Only Enoch


Flatbed Press in Austin is pleased to present The Book of Only Enoch, a portfolio of 20 woodcut and relief etchings, and selected plates used to create the prints.

JANUARY 13 – MARCH 11, 2017
January 20, 2017 6-8PM RECEPTION

Bolotin tells the story of Only Enoch, a sensitive Jewish boy from Kentucky who is named after an apocryphal book left out of the Hebrew Bible whose protagonist “went to heaven and lived to tell the tale.” The viewer enters a world inhabited by people, flora, fauna, and heretofore unknown forms and spaces. And in ways that may remind us of epic story-tellers including William Blake and Lewis Carroll, Bolotin combines words and images to create worlds with their own logic, in order to tell captivating, bizarre and dreamlike stories.

Bolotin’s visual work is included in many public and private collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; PAFA (Philadelphia); The University of Richmond Museum, Smith College Museum, and the Australian National Museum. He grew up in rural Kentucky.

The Book of Only Enoch is an ingredient in an ongoing trilogy of motion pictures called The Jackleg Testament, all constructed from Bolotin’s visual work. Part one of The Jackleg Testament – Jack & Eve, a woodcut motion picture, won Best Animation at the Santa Fe Film Festival, 2007.

Bolotin will give a brief performance at the reception, at 6:00 PM, Friday, January 20th, consisting of songs and a short film titled Kharmen, which combines a famous aria from the opera, Carmen, and the short stories of Russian absurdist writer, Daniil Kharms.

This exhibition is presented in conjunction with Landmarks (UT Austin). Organized and circulated by the University of Richmond Museums, Virginia, the exhibition is made possible in part with funds from the Louis S. Booth Arts Fund.

December Workshops at Oil & Cotton





with James Thurman
Saturday, Dec 3, 3-6pm
Basic metalworking is easier than you think (and possibly a lot more fun!).  In this workshop, students will create a unique metal ornament embellished with their own textures.  Hammering, stamping, pressing, and punching, oh my.  Just a few of the techniques introduced that students can use to customize their own individual design.  By the end of the workshop, students will have at least one finished metal ornament to decorate with and the knowledge (and hopefully enthusiasm) to make more.


w/ Analise Minjarez
Sunday, December 4, 3-6pm
Students will learn beginning knot techniques to create a sturdy and stellar tapestry plant hanger. Taught by fiber artist Analise Minjarez, these beginning knots are the first steps to a continued practice is textile crafts.

Scorch and Drag | Prints and Sculpture by John Robert Craft


OPENS June 17, 2016
June 17 2016; 6-8pm
August 27, 2016
Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm; Saturday noon-5pm

http://www.flatbedpress.com Austin, TX

John Robert Craft, sculptor and printmaker, possesses an innate interest in ferrous metals, used
to create an inseparable dialogue between his two and three-dimensional work. His sculptural
work is abstract, solid and heavy, influenced by studies in geology and the metallurgy of his
choice medium: ferrous metals. Within his printmaking practice, these solid cast-iron sculptural
pieces are utilized as tools to create minimalistic abstract images that map the energy and
direction of the sculpture across the printmaking substrate, iron or wood, while documenting the
sculpture’s mass, movement, and form. They create nebulous images on paper, suggesting
both at the same time a microcosmic view resembling particle movement or a larger
macrocosmic approximation of stellar movements through space. Scorch and Drag will exhibit
several mid and large-scale sculptures alongside the monotype and relief prints they were used
to create.
Jack’s most recent project with Flatbed, the Fire Etching Suite, will also be on exhibition in it’s
entirety. This work consists of two diptychs, one tetraptych and two oversized individual prints.
The suite is a study in intaglio of the degradation of ferrous metals through the use of heat and
Join us for this wonderful opportunity to see John Robert Craft’s sculptures and prints exhibited
together. Scorch and Drag runs from June 17 to August 27, with an opening reception the
evening of June 17th from 6-8pm.

“OUT OF LA ROMITA” opening May 20 at Flatbed Press

LaRomita_Connections_72 (1)

ARTIST’S RECEPTION May 20, 2016; 6-8pm
CLOSES June 30, 2016

Flatbed Press and Gallery 2830 East MLK Jr Blvd Austin, Texas 78702 HOURS Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm; Saturday noon-5pm

Flatbed Press is pleased to present Out of La Romita, the third biannual exhibition of work by past participants of Flatbed Press’s “Italian Intensive” summer workshop at La Romita School of Art located at Terni, Italy. The workshop, taught by Suzi Davidoff and Katherine Brimberry, has been offered since 2011.

The show serves as a reunion for the artists who already know each other as well as an expansion of the La Romita network in forging new relationships. On exhibition are works either inspired by the La Romita experience or other works by the artists who have traveled there. Sending work or traveling to Austin to show work are artists from Australia, El Paso, Dallas and Savannah. The inherent content and connection is the people, the place, and the experience of the intensive itself.

Dan Lambert, acoustic guitarist from El Paso, will be providing entertainment for the evening. Dan has performed extensively and is well known both as a musician and restorer of rare vintage guitars. He will be accompanied by percussionist, Chris Serrano, also from El Paso.

The show will be opening the same night as De la Complicidad con la Agresión, an exhibition of works by Miguel Aragón. Join us for an Artist’s Reception the evening Friday, May 20 from 6-8pm.

De la Complicidad con la Agresión | Miguel A. Aragón opens May 20 at Flatbed Press


Flatbed Press is pleased to present “De la Complicidad con la Agresión” (April 15-June 4), a collection of recent works, including a site specific installation and new publications with Flatbed Press, by Miguel A. Aragón. Join us for an Artist Reception the evening of May 20, from 6-8pm.

Aragón is a native of Ciudad Juárez, a primary battleground in the violent war between rival cartels and law enforcement agencies for control of the drug trade into the United States. Thousands of people die in drug-related violence every year in México. Content for Aragón’s images comes from photographs published by the media, in print and digital format, depicting crude and raw forensic evidence. Aragón’s work is derived from a need to find meaning in these brutal events that reposition the corpse in one’s field of vision, reminding us that our physical existence is finite. By using metaphors and visual metonymies to tie together process and subject matter he explores the idea of perception, memory, and transformation.

“Beginning with the idea of erasure as language, I concentrate on the use of processes that are reductive in nature. Any form of erasure, however violently destructive, can be seen as constructive in some way; something comes through the destruction, the negation of an image is not actually nothing. It is my intention to transform the image, through erasure, from crude and unbearable into a more beguiling or subtle way of presenting these disturbing images. The void thus creates a space that nurtures the memory of what was before, engaging the viewer with a more intricate experience of the image. What I am looking for, as a result of these deletions is not to forget the horrific crimes these images convey; rather, I am searching for an understanding of what has happened by acquiring a sense of catharsis.”

Flatbed is located at 2830 East MLK Jr Blvd in Austin, TX 78702. Hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm and Saturday, noon-5pm. Call 512-477-9328 or visit www.flatbedpress.com for more information.

Acrylic Printmaking with a Gelli Plate

Thursday, March 17th 10 am – 3 pm (with an hour break for lunch)

Instructor: Sharon Giles

Put the fun back into your art! Learn how to do acrylic monoprints by using a Gelli Plate.  No press needed!

Please let the instructor know if you need to borrow one.  Bring an apron or wear grunge clothes.

The acrylic can be any type or consistency of acrylic, including craft brands. The paper doesn’t need to be expensive: cheap watercolor paper, mixed media paper, drawing paper, bristol, copy paper, deli paper and even canvas paper. The instructor will bring extra paper, paints, stencils, stamps and other tools for you to experiment with.

For information on Gelli Plates, see http://www.gelliarts.com/. If you wish to make your own: http://sharongilesart.com/making-your-own-gelatinglycerin-plate/

Shapeshifter 1 web

Flatbed Press is pleased to present SHAPESHIFTER (April 12-May 31), an exhibition of works by Ryan O’Malley. Join us for an Artist Reception the evening of April 15, from 6-8pm. Conceived as part of an ongoing project entitled The Process of Getting to Know You, SHAPESHIFTER explores the vastness of print media through non-traditional portraiture. Stencil matrices serve as the genesis point; faces of personally significant people are reduced by paper and blade to their most uniquely recognizable shapes. From there the work investigates parallels between the individual and humanity, and how concept meshes with medium and matrix.

The works in SHAPESHIFTER include laser-cut amalgams of individuals grouped to form totemic beings. The pieces removed from each edition of stencils are arranged to form abstract compositions, strangely recognizable or suggestive of elusive symbols. By transmuting between traditional and technology-driven print media, the works contrast static and dynamic properties, and navigate the spaces between precision and imperfection, between the ephemeral, fixed, and perpetual.

Flatbed is located at 2830 East MLK Jr Blvd in Austin, Texas 78702. Hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm and Saturday, noon-5pm.
