Artist Jenny Balisle examines her print assisted by Linda Stinchfield a volunteer from the Foothill College Print Studio.

On Saturday May 31st, artists and volunteers participated in a series of monotype print sessions in a variety of print studios throughout the Bay Area. This is a long-standing fundraising activity for the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art where sponsors fund the creative energy and time of artists in the creation of a small series of monotypes in exchange for an opening bid in a silent auction hosted by the ICA in July.

Master Printmaker Kent Manske discusses print selection with artist Jenny Balisle and SJICA representative Lis Dubois alongside volunteers from the Foothill College Print Studio.

Workshops were held in the prints studios at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, Foothill College, Kala Art Institute, Monterey Peninsula College, Pacific Art League, and San Jose State University. The exhibition takes place from July 1st to July 19th, with the silent auction taking place on Saturday July 19th.
