Interstitial, 24" x 36" Monotype by Ruth Hesse

The artist will be showing her monotypes, a type of print created by transferring a painted image from a smooth plate to paper. The ink may be transferred by hand, applying pressure to the back of the paper as it rests on the inked plate, or with an etching press. Ruth Hesse uses both techniques, building layer upon layer of colored inks to create rich, textural, one-of-a-kind prints.

Light refreshments provided.
