Program Description


The artists' reception for the exhibition, "Making Monotypes: The Painterly Print" celebrates a group of monotype printmakers. This show is on view from April 2- 29, 2024 during regular Library hours. The public is invited to this opening reception on April 6, 2024 from 2 to 4 pm to meet and greet the artists and enjoy refreshments.

In this exhibition, you will see a variety of both reductive and additive methods used by artists Scott Bricher, Barbara Went Cover, Joan Macfarlane, Roberta Shea, Mary Terrizzi, and Nancy Zarider. All the artists are from the studio of the Washington Arts Association, under the direction of Master Printmaker Anthony Kirk.  

What is a monotype print and how are they made? Monotype prints are usually original and unique, with an edition of one or two impressions. The artist uses a hard, non-absorbent surface and applies a wide range of media. Paper is placed on top of the plate and pressure is applied by hand or by using the press to transfer a painterly image.
