The Monotype Guild of New England is showcasing nearly 80 monotypes and monoprints for an exhibition at the Chester Gallery of Art at New England College in Henniker, NH. Curated by MGNE exhibition chairs Kate Higley and Andrea Warner, alongside Gallery Director and MGNE member Devon Mozdierz, this exhibition was open to all current MGNE members. For the first time, we are highlighting collaborative prints created by our members. To view a gallery of all the prints in the exhibition, click here.

Special Installation: Monotype Stop-Motion Animations

In collaboration with Susan Rostow and Speedball Art Products, we will also be exhibiting two stop motion animation monotype videos that highlight the collaborative nature of stop motion animation and printmaking. The “Long Journey Home” was created using monotype prints by twenty-two artists during Printfest 2018, a fair hosted by the International Print Center New York. The “Nested World” is a stop motion animation created by twenty artists at the SGC International printmaking conference, TEXCHANGE 2019.
