Each year the Center for Contemporary Printmaking hosts MONOTHON: a marathon of monotype printmaking. Now in its ninteenth year, MONOTHON provides artists of all ages the opportunity to work with acclaimed printers in intensive, five-hour sessions to create original artworks called monotypes.
Each MONOTHON artist, beginner and experienced alike, is fully assisted by a printer allowing for the artists to focus singularly on their own personal expression without worrying about operating the printing press. All materials are provided, and artists can create up to ten prints during each session. At the end of each session, one print from each artist is selected for exhibition and sale at the MONOTHON2017 Auction and Benefit Party. Participating artists keep the remainder of their prints. This year’s MONOTHON printing sessions culminate on October 28 with the Live and Silent Auction and Benefit Party.
This year, we are encouraging artists to sign up for printing sessions during the summer months and into early fall, not just during printing week. So, it is not too soon to pick your dates and be a part of MONOTHON2017.
To schedule a session to call CCP at 203-899-7999.
