Experimental Impressions: The Seventeenth-Century Origins of Monotype

Monotypes emerged as an important experimental medium in the nineteenth century with the innovative prints of Degas, Gauguin, Pissarro, and others. Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione is often credited with inventing the monotype technique in the seventeenth century, but it is unlikely that Degas and his contemporaries were looking at Castiglione’s prints. Rather, it was Rembrandt van Rijn’s experimental etchings that provided the most important catalyst for nineteenth-century monotypists. Join Prof. Alexandra Onuf as she explores the visual, technical and conceptual through lines from Rembrandt and other seventeenth-century printmakers to Degas and his circle in order to understand the experimental foundations for the monotype “revival” in the nineteenth century.

Joan Hausrath: Looking Back
A Twenty Year Retrospective of Printmaking

Opening Reception: September 12, 1-2:30 pm

On exhibit in the newly reopened Gallery 175 at 175 Main Street in Pawtucket are prints by MGNE member Joan Hausrath. Titled Looking Back, the exhibition displays prints from several series of the artist’s work created over the past twenty years.

The prints on exhibit include scenes inspired by the dramatic landscape of Iceland, images inspired by archaeological finds, and depictions of Mexican masks. Another series uses diagramed pictographs to record destinations in Hausrath’s world travels, while her recent work uses etched images of stones placed both in their natural setting and in architectural configurations.

For the past thirty years Hausrath has been researching safer alternatives to the centuries-old tradition of using acids and solvent based materials in printmaking and has received a number of grants to fund her studies.  She currently teaches workshops in non-toxic printmaking to regional print groups.

Collaborative Transformations Online Exhibition

View online at

In early spring, 2020, in response to Covid-19, MGNE began to explore virtual programming and community building in order to continue to serve its membership while respecting CDC guidelines. Regional groups of printmakers began forming and meeting virtually throughout New England and beyond.

A group of MGNE members residing in Maine began meeting virtually in May 2020. The regional group of Maine printmakers divided into four small randomly chosen autonomous groups of three or four printmakers. Usually each member would begin a print and mail it to another member in a pre-arranged order to continue working. Once each small group member had contributed to the print, it was returned to the originator to title and rework if needed. By late summer of 2020, the first cycle of collaborative prints was finished. As of Spring 2021, they are completing their second cycle of collaborative prints.

We are thrilled to present this virtual exhibition to showcase these collaborative transformations. As other regional MGNE groups have started their own collaboration print projects, this virtual exhibition will be ongoing through 2021 as projects continue to transform and evolve. Additional prints from the MGNE Maine artists and beyond will continue to be added.

Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, produces a unique impression that is intimately and permanently bonded with the fibers of the paper. The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory, and delight. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations. Clean-up will be with baby oil or Gamsol.
