VISUAL ART
Steamrolling at Printmakers Studio
How big are the prints being created at Print Big 2013, the fourth annual event presented by the Atlanta Printmakers Studio from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 13. So big that it will take a steamroller to print the 4-feet-by-8-feet woodblocks carved by 10 participating groups. Festivities at the free gathering include hands-on printmaking activities, studio tours, music, food and the chance to view and purchase irreverent work by the Mississippi printmaker who goes by the name Sean Starwars. The studio is in the Metropolitan Business and Arts District complex at 675 Metropolitan Parkway, Atlanta. www.atlantaprintmakersstudio.org. HOWARD POUSNER

Old is new at this marketplace

If you like “upcycled” crafts and furniture in the vein of the trendy goods sold on etsy.com, the Revival’s Vintage Marketplace will likely appeal.
