“It was an exciting experience for me to go through the nearly 650 entries for the Monotype Guild of New England’s national show. I was delighted to discover a very broad array of approaches submitted to what I can no longer call a monotype exhibition. Rather, what I have selected for this exhibition are examples of ‘singular impressions.’ There are many examples of monotype here; however, most of the artists who entered work relied on relief, intaglio, lithography and ink-jet rung through a variety of other process to make one-of-a-kind prints. These, it seems to me, not only broaden the scope of work in this exhibition, but enliven it as well. Including a variety of approaches and showing them together allows viewers to assess what is singular about each of these…” – Andrew Stevens, Juror Statement
Andrew Stevens, Curator of the Collection of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at the Chazen Museum at the University of Wisconsin, has published on a variety of subjects from the prints of 18th century printmaker, William Hogarth, to the color woodcut in Japan, Europe and America. He provides unique insights from more than 25 years experience of caring for a collection of 14,000 works on paper and organizing more than 80 exhibitions. Stevens’ most recent publications trace the development of monotype and related processes used by American artists from the late 19th century into the late 20th century. In 2015, Stevens curated the exhibition American Monotypes from the Baker/Pisano Collection, which examined the popularity of the monotype in America and how techniques developed in America over the past two centuries, placing the medium into historical context.
