September 2-September 26, 2010

I studied monotype printmaking at Parsons School of Design in New York while a graduate student in painting (1982-84) and fell in love with the process.  Monotype is the most painterly of all the printmaking processes and afforded me a fluid and spontaneous means of image making that was a delightful change from the rigors of painting oil on canvas.  In 1985 I was invited to show four of my monotype prints from that period in an exhibition at the Newark Museum entitled “The Painter’s Print.” 

Participating in “One of a Kind” was the impetus for me to start making prints again in a serious way.  In April of 2010, I joined the community of printmakers at Circling the Square Fine Art Press in Gardiner, Maine where the work for this show was completed.

The Harlow Gallery is located at 160 Water Street in Hallowell Maine.
