Peregrine Press: A Texas Legacy

Interview with a Master Printer

A Texas Legacy of printmaking, Peregrine Press existed for over ten years in Dallas, first at the studio and gallery located at Peak and Ross just east of downtown Dallas and later at a larger studio in Deep Ellum on Main Street.  Founded in 1981 by Mike and Jo Ann Hart with Gerry Lemke, Peregrine was one of the first fine art presses in Texas. The Harts and Lemke established their press with a commitment to collaborate with the emerging and established artists that lived and worked in Texas. Being located in Dallas gave Peregrine access to a group of young artists which included David Bates, John Alexander, Ed and Linda Blackburn, Dan Rizzie and also brought in seasoned Texas artists such as Otis Dozier, Joseph Glasco and Robert Gordy as well as many others.  Artists from outside the Texas realm also came to their door, including a memorable collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat. Mike and Gerry shared master-printer responsibilities while Jo Ann maintained the gallery and business side of the operation.  Realizing that more printing help was needed, Tom Piper, an experienced master printer was hired. Bill Lagatutta, currently the senior master printer at Tamarind, began as Peregrine’s master printer in 1986.

At the end of the ten years of work, over 600 titles (editions and monotypes) with over  90 artists had been created.  The prints reveal the decade of the 80’s through the lens of the artists working at Peregrine. The prints exhibited at Flatbed represent a small selection of the work that was created.  

Peregrine’s brilliant collaborations brought fresh appreciation to fine art prints in Dallas and across the state.  The work that remains their legacy is recognized as master print works by art historians and collectors. Flatbed Press was founded in 1989 and its existence was inspired by Peregrine Press. 

All the impressions in the exhibition are from the archives of owner/master printer Mike Hart and are offered for sale. Multiple impressions are available for purchase in most editions.

West Through East... East Through West: Japanese Woodblock Prints of Daryl Howard
January 13 - February 11, 2015
6-8pm
January 16, 2015

 

Created through a woodcut printing process originating in 700AD Japan, Daryl Howard's prints depict scenes from her travels around the world. Join us, and Daryl Howard, for the Artist's Reception January 16 from 6-8pm.

Daryl says of her work, "as I have traveled this planet my eyes have been captivated by the particular places that remain with me through my woodblock prints. This selection of traditional Japanese Woodblock Prints, exhibited for Print Austin, depict scenes in Morocco, Portugal, France, Luxembourg, Amsterdam, Peru, and my home here in Texas. Through these prints, my mind’s eye can return to these locations over and over again.

For 40 years, I have seen the world through this process. No matter where I am I will translate my vision – invigorated in the East by the Chinese and subsequently in 700 AD by the Japanese. I have carried this practice westward, to my studio in Southwest Austin. Every image has the essence of the East, leant through the intricacies of this classic and traditional technique.”

Bob Schneider and Terry Allen: Outside The Lines
January 10 - February 10, 2015
6-8pm
January 16, 2015

Flatbed Press and Gallery presents a pairing of two visual artists who are also known for their musical talents as singer/song writers. The exhibition, Outside the Lines, contains etchings, lithographs and collages created by these artists and shown in conjunction with PrintAustin 2015.

Bob’s creativity is rampant in his stream of consciousness line etchings and the recent intricate collages. Exhibited at Flatbed will be Terry’s suite of color lithographs, Bottom of the World, created at Landfall Press in 2013. The suite of eleven lithographs, which was published with Terry’s accompanying LP in an edition of 30, is a collection of playful and sinister country meditations set in the US-Mexico border lands.  

Bob and Terry’s exhibition is a prelude to a public concert to be presented by Flatbed Press in celebration of its twenty-fifth anniversary on January 24, 2015. Held at the UT Ballroom, the collaborative call-and-response type of improvisational performance grants viewers an intimate look into the personalities of the two musicians. General Admission and Table Tickets are available through the accompanying links. UT Ballroom and Cactus Cafe Tickets
