Friday, July 11 7PM-10PM MODERNFORMATIONS GALLERY & PERFORMANCE SPACE - 4919 PENN AVE.THE MONOPRINT: AN EXPLORATION OF TECHNIQUE - ARTWORK BY ERIC WHITE Monoprinting is a spontaneous form of printmaking that creates one image rather than a series of images. By mixing colored inks and multiple layers, the artist employs different techniques such as color gradations, stencils, and scraping methods to create dynamics in the print. Some of the prints have as many as ten additional layers of varying color. This adds to their vibrant and sculptural quality by creating interplay between layers and the build up of ink on the surface. These unique, rare, and innovative works will be on view through July 25. Please join us for the opening reception on July 11th from 7 to 10pm 412-362-0274
