We’re mad for PrintHouston year three, overseen by Cathie Kayser alongside a stalwart band of dedicated and proficient fellow Houston printmakers, who beginning this spring crafted a top-gun salute for all things ink on paper as well as some unorthodox media, with a two-ton steamroller thrown in. PrintHouston continues the tradition of Houston-incubated organizations (FotoFest is first and foremost in this category) and reaches its annual crescendo in the steamy month of June, where prints bust out from Isabella Court to Colquitt, 4411 Montrose to (natch) the Museum of Printing History, which mounts the juried exhibition “PrintTx 2013,” selected by Texas Tech Museum’s Peter Briggs (June 13 –September 14) … Three other best bests are Joan Winter’s decade-long print survey at Wade Wilson Art (through July 6); “Steamrolled III” at Peveto, serving up massive woodcuts imprinted by the aforementioned mighty steamroller (June 15 – July 6); and ­the sublime and vaporous abstracted cakes by Jeffrey Dell at Art Palace. Savor a slice (through June 22). More shows, printmattershouston.org.
