One on One: A Survey of Contemporary Monotypes & Monoprints
February 26 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 26, 2023
This exhibition is dedicated to the art of singular printmaking. Although the original purpose of the printing process has been to share information through the production of multiples, monotypes and monoprints contradict this historic function and are presented as unique artworks. From the direct painting on panels or the inking of objects transferred to paper through a mechanical press, to hand-rolling on silk fabric and other alternative surfaces, contemporary artists exploring the monoprint making practice are attracted to the possibilities of pigment transfer, image reversal and the rich color saturation offered by the medium. This capacity for surprise and spontaneity makes monotype printmaking both a creative stimulus for an artist’s practice as well as an end unto itself. Reception for the artists: Saturday, January 21, 4-6 p.m.
