SACO — The Saco Museum is hosting the Monotype Guild of New England’s juried exhibition Down East through Oct. 28. 

The exhibition will feature fifty monotypes and monoprints, a process that produces unique, one-of-a-kind prints.

The jurors for the exhibition, a mother and daughter team of Catherine Kernan and Josephine Graf, chose 50 works from 115 submitted by 84 artists.

Kernan is an internationally known printmaker, painter, and instructor with work in the collections of, among others, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Fogg Art Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art, New York Public Library, Library of Congress, and the Detroit Institute of Art. 

She is co-owner, co-founder, and director of Mixit Print Studio, a professional open rental printmaking studio in Somerville, Massachusetts. 

Her daughter, Josephine Graf, is a writer and curator based in New York City who holds an MA from The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College. 

Her writing has appeared in publications including Mousse, frieze, X-TRA, Cura, and The Brooklyn Rail. Graf recently spoke at the Whitney Museum of American Art on the work of Win McCarthy, and organized an exhibition of Pooh Kaye’s early films at Shoot the Lobster in New York.
