Now in its third year, Paper Trail SA is a veritable wonderland for fans of unique printmaking and design, as well as those wishing to deck their walls or add to their art collection. Dedicated to contemporary works of art and design on paper, Paper Trail’s mission is to provide artists and onlookers alike “a one-of-a-kind experience aimed at connecting artists to collectors in a forum that celebrates the artistic process and the culture of design and printmaking.” And, we aren’t kidding when we say that, this year, the sheer scope and diversity of participating artists is as impressive as the individual artists themselves. Just a few of the 45 featured artists that we are looking forward to snagging some product from include locals Regina Morales (with that sweet pop-goth style), Cruz Ortiz (the man of the moment in Tex-Mex printmaking) and Jose Sotelo (maker of mystical images that meld the natural with the hyperreal). We’re also excited to see work from Puro Chingón Collective (Austin), Sable Mirerez (Chicago), James Beard (Houston) and Maritza Torres (Los Angeles). Aside from the dizzyingly stacked day market, you may want to plan to attend an exclusive preview/mixer night for Paper Trail, also at Brick ($25, 7-11pm Friday).
