kelly2Kelly Maker, a Visual Arts major at Massasoit Community College, is currently displaying work in the Monotype Guild of New England (MGNE) 2015 national juried student exhibition “Layers.” The exhibition features emerging student printmakers from across the country. Kelly’s submission “emerge” is the only featured work from a community college student.

The MGNE received submissions from 30 artists totaling 78 pieces. Of those, 18 pieces from 16 artists were chosen by MGNE. “Layers” is being hosted by Curry College from February 1 through March 14 in the Shelley Hoon Keith Quiet Study Lounge.

Ms. Maker, a Halifax resident, is a student in Massasoit’s Visual Arts program and plans to transfer to a four-year degree program upon her graduation.

The Monotype Guild of New England is a nonprofit organization of more than 250 artists working in the medium of monotypes and monoprints. Founded in 1985, the Guild is dedicated to promoting an understanding and appreciation of unique, one-of-a-kind prints, through workshops and exhibitions. The Guild’s members are primarily from New England; however, there are members from across the Unites States who have sought to be part of an organization dedicated to monotypes and monoprints.
