VA Professor Wendy Edwards at Russell Janis, Brooklyn, NY

Wendy Edwards spent three days at the Russell Janis studio creating a series of monotypes on the press with master printer Janis Stemmermann. Bringing along brushes from her studio and a color palette familiar to her, she took on this first-time monotype experience, producing a beautiful new series of works layering bold and subtle brushstrokes and color.
