The Monothon returns and it’s better than ever! To be held July 18 through July 21, 2008 the Monothon supports the creative endeavors of professional artists, emerging artists, students, and artists-for-a-day, while it provides an opportunity for art lovers and collectors from throughout Southern California to view and purchase fine original prints. Assisted by a staff of professionals, Ron Pokrasso, mixed-media artist, printmaker, and originator of the Monothon, will again conduct the five hour workshops. His printmaking and teaching expertise along with his warm and welcoming character insures that all participants will enjoy this unique printmaking experience.
At the conclusion of Monothon 14, one monotype will be selected from each artist and chosen for exhibition in the Members Gallery beginning July 26 through August 16, 2008. An opening reception and silent auction planned for Friday, August 1 will allow viewers to purchase the prints. The preview reception for sponsors and donors is from 6 pm until 7 pm. The silent auction for members and guests begins at 7pm. All proceeds help fund future workshops, exhibits and education programs.
This year, artist duo Jeff Soto & Jeff Ribaudo designed this year’s Monothon 14 branding using the museum’s presses to create a monotype. The design will be used on all promotional material as well as on limited edition t-shirt printed for Monothon 14. The Monothon is a major event that relies on the assistance of members of the art community; if you’d like to volunteer for Monothon this year, contact Lee Tusman at LTusman@riversideartmuseum.org.
