Monotypes are one of my favorite mediums that capture spontaneity and produce results that are very difficult to control.  Currently The Monotype Guild of New England is hosting its Fourth National Juried Monotype/Monoprint Exhibit at the Attleboro Arts Museum in Attleboro, MA thru May 7, 2016.  The exhibit was juried by Andrew Stevens, Curator of the Collection of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at the Chazen Museum at the University of Wisconsin.
