Stonemetal Press is a nonprofit community press art studio and gallery founded in 1991. The gallery is located in the contemporary art center of San Antonio, Blue Star Art Complex. First Friday Art Walks, artists' studios, galleries, coffee houses and unique shops cluster close to the San Antonio River. Famous and local artists are represented here at the gallery, with special events and exhibitions throughout the year.
The studio provides a place for making original hand pulled prints and to provide education to the public about fine art printmaking.
The studio has intaglio, lithography, relief and other printmaking capabilities at low cost to artists. Classes, demos, and open studios are offered. We have published work by Vincent Valdez, Luis Jimenez and George Yepes.
The gallery brings original prints to San Antonio by artists all over the world, as well as providing sales opportunities for member artists.
As part of its educational mission, the Press sponsors a Biennual international printmaking competition and exhibition, Hand-Pulled Prints, accompanied by a catalogue.
