The Monotype Guild of New England invites members in good standing to submit up to TWO monotypes or monoprints for Small Wonders, a juried members exhibition of small works at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts.
Entry Deadline: May 7, 2017
Juror: Lynn Peterfreund is a core faculty member of Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, MA and has been working as a painter, printmaker and art educator since receiving her MFA in 1980 from Pratt Institute. Her work reflects her interests in both representational and abstract art. Lynn’s most recent bodies of work are monotypes and intaglio prints that employ a vocabulary of forms based on years of working from observation of nature, still life and the figure. Lynn has taught at a variety of institutions over the past forty years. Her work is included in hundreds of public, private and corporate collections. Her mural work can be seen in hospitals, schools, bookstores, museums and homes in western Massachusetts and beyond. Her work can be seen on her website at www.lynnpeterfreund.com.
