Both considered and spontaneous, monotypes are created by placing ink on a plate and running it with paper through a press. A unique impression is produced and can be left as-is or expanded on however one wishes.
At the Salmagundi Club, NY, in the late 19th century, monotype parties were a tradition of spontaneous art-making and camaraderie. In 2010, current Salmagundians revived the practice, and the monotype party has once again become a monthly occasion.
Salmagundi monotype parties are held on the first Tuesday of each month. This exhibit celebrates the history of monotype at the Salmagundi Club and the variety of imagery possible with this beloved open-ended technique.
