Pressing On was started over a decade ago as an affiliated group of printmakers. The initial success of this effort became, over time, one of the most popular events of the Taos Fall Arts Festival. This year the show continues through the Wool Festival weekend, providing another opportunity to catch it if there was too much going on last week.
The group of print makers originated with eight artists who met in a University of New Mexico-Taos monotype class taught by Gary Cook. Gradually they bought their own presses, tables, drying racks, and other materials, and set up their own studios. After their first show in 2010, they invited more printmakers to join and have since held annual shows.
This year, all of the unframed prints will be hanging from clothes lines throughout the Stables Gallery, a great adjunct to the beloved Wool Festival in Kit Carson Park, next door.
The gallery will be open daily through Oct. 3 from 10 a.m-5 p.m.
The related workshop was canceled.
