Flatbed - founded in 1989 by Katherine Brimberry and Mark L. Smith - is located at Flatbed Press and Gallery, an 18,000 sq. ft. warehouse which was redeveloped in 1999 as a community of creative professionals. Visitors have compared the aesthetics of the space to New York City's Chelsea-district warehouse galleries.
Located on Boggy Creek in east Austin (near the University of Texas at Austin campus) at 2832 East Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., our facility includes not only our shop, offices, and galleries, but also eleven tenants: Gallery Shoal Creek,CAMIBA Art, Austin Book Arts Center, L_A_N D Architects, Hubbard Birchler Studio, Daniel Arredondo Studio, Smith and Hawley, NJ Weaver Studio, Recspec Design Studio, Jacqueline May Studio and Troy Brauntuch Studio. This mix of visual-arts professionals provides a "24/7" creative synergy in the building.
Flatbed comprises two divisions: Flatbed Press is a publishing workshop which collaborates with artists to produce limited editions of original etchings, lithographs, woodcuts and monoprints. Flatbed also does contract, collaborative printing for other publishers, dealers, artists, and institutions and is available on a limited basis for open shop work by experienced artists. Flatbed Gallery is a private art gallery which specializes in original prints.
Internships - Flatbed requires interns to be available 16-20 hours per week and we prefer applicants that are eligible for classroom credit through their educational system. Our internships are a one semester volunteer opportunity and positions available are either in the front office business management or assisting in our printmaking facility.
Gallery Hours: Tue.-Fri. 10am-5pm, Sat. 12pm-5pm and by appointment.
