The Monotype Guild of New England is a non-profit organization founded in 1985 by Beverly Edwards and a group of artists working with her in monotype workshops at the Fuller Museum in Brockton and at the Cope Cod Conservatory in Barnstable, Massachusetts. The group needed to find sites to exhibit their work and exchange ideas with other artists working in this medium. Edwards formed the structure, purpose and by-laws of the Monotype Guild of New England (MGNE).
The purpose of the organization, dedicated to the art of the unique print, is to foster understanding and appreciation of monotypes and monoprints. To this end, the guild sponsors exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations and other special programs for its members and the public.
(The show continues through April 6 at the Barrington Center for the Arts, 255 Grapevine Road, Wenham, Mass. For more information, call (978) 927-2300 ext 4414.)
