Patricia Sennott is displaying monotye prints of native birds and flowers at the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center during the month of September.

“Monotype refers to a one-of-a-kind, handmade print method,” Sennott explains on her website. “One example of my monotype technique is the three-color registration process, which involves three separate inkings that mix and form a wide spectrum of colors. I also work in more spontaneous approaches but they all involve the same tools: oil based ink, sheets of rigid plastic for making the image, towels and cotton swabs, rag paper and an etching press.”

The Interpretive Center is located at 569 South G Street, Arcata, and is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday between 1 and 5 p.m. For more information, call (707) 826-2359.
