Monotypes at Tidemark

Amaranth, monotype by Anne Wooster

WALDOBORO -- March 6 starts the new season at Tidemark Gallery with Waldoboro artist, Anne Wooster’s uniquely beautiful monotypes of plants and flowers that grow right here in gardens, woods and fields.

Anne was born and grew up in the stately village home, originally a nineteenth century inn known as Stahl’s Tavern. Waldoboro teachers, artists and family encouraged her early interest in art as photography. Bringing home a Master’s degree from Maryland Institute College of Art and with several years of experience as a teacher, herself, Anne now applies photographic principals to a printing process known as “monotypes.”

In one of the former inn’s guest rooms which she now uses as as her studio, she combines live plant materials collected while pursuing another lifelong interest, natural history, in a sophisticated process of multiple steps to create a completely new art form. It recalls some of the romance and industry of the time when the house itself was built and it does not get more local than this!

Botanical Monotypes will be on display at the gallery from Wednesday, March 6, through Saturday, March 30. The opening reception will be on Saturday, March 9, from 5 to 7 at Tidemark Gallery, 902 Main Street, Waldoboro Village.
