Just saw some exhibitions at the Blanton Museum:

There was also a family day event Friday and Saturday (December 27/28, 2013)  - printmaking to learn the very basics alongside the Augsburg exhibition - which had a few excellent pieces from Albrecht Duerer and others. 

The little museum school, staffed with very friendly helpers, offered everyone to make an 'etching' into a small plastic card, then print with it on a folded card raw. Etching was actually not that easy and finer details not possible. But it was a lot of fun - like the potato stamping I sometimes do to make cover papers.

I very much liked the Waltercio Caldas exposition as well, a rather lighthearted, playful art I think.
