This is a Southwestern print project headed by Krrrl (Karl Whitaker). This show is a Carpeta, a Latino Print Portfolio of the Desert Triangle, who are a group of printmakers from Tucson, Albuquerque, and El Paso-Ciudad, Juarez-Las Cruces.

These works have influences in Chicano, Hispanic, and Indegionous art and culture. Pain Sugar Gallery will be hosting the show from June 7th through July 28th. There will also be books of the show’s history and collection only available at Urge Palette Art Supplies (located next door to Pain Sugar Gallery.
