A monotype by Terri McGaffin, assistant professor of art at Morningside College, is one of 126 pieces selected from over 850 entries for the “National Exhibition of Monotypes and Monoprints” at the Attleboro Arts Museum in Attleboro, Mass.
Sponsored by the Monotype Guild of New England (MGNE), the juried exhibit received entries from 298 artists in 43 states. McGaffin’s monotype, entitled “Lock #1”, will be on exhibit from September 6 through October 3 at the Attleboro museum.
McGaffin has been an art instructor at Morningside College since 2004. She received her bachelor’s degree from Drake University and her master’s degree from the University of South Dakota. Her work is in the collections of the Sioux City Art Center, Morningside College and the University of South Dakota, as well as many private collections.
Monotypes are a type of print created by applying paint or ink to a flat surface and then pressing a sheet of paper to that surface to transfer the ink to the paper. The process of transferring ink or paint to paper can be repeated many times to build the image.
