Printmakers around the world and several in Las Cruces will have their doors open, making prints and giving studio tours and demonstrations Saturday, May 7, for International Print Day.

Art lovers and collectors and anyone wanting to learn more about printmaking are invited to visit local studios that day, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.:

Visitors to all four studios will have their names entered in a drawing for a unique collaborative print made by Alire, Sandino, Bardey and Shelton valued at $100, the four artists said in a news release.

“Print Day in May is celebrated on the first Saturday in May, every year,” according to https://printdayinmay.com/about/. “The event celebrates the art and community of printmaking. All over the world, printmakers open their studios to friends, use their cars as presses, and make handprints on the beach, all to spread the joy of printmaking.”

Follow the worldwide event @printdayinmay on Facebook and Instagram and search for #printdayinmay.
