Lois Beatty has been a member of Two Rivers Printmaking Studio, in White River Junction, Vermont, since 2001, when she moved to New Hampshire from the Boston area. She had been working for many years in painting, collage, paper pulp painting, and monoprinting. After joining TRPS, her work expanded to incorporate some of the more traditional etching techniques. Recently she has been doing solarplate etching and collagraphs.
Beatty’s art straddles the abstract/realistic line, but her starting point is always shapes in nature-from rocks and bones to the human figure. Color, texture, and layering are central to her art. She teaches monoprint workshops at Two Rivers, serves on its Board of Directors, and was on the studio’s 2004, 2006, and 2008 Portfolio Committees.
She studied art and art history at Oberlin College; the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Massachusetts College of Art; Rugg Road Papers and Prints; and Two Rivers Printmaking Studio. She has exhibited in solo and group shows nationally, and was juried into the Provincetown Art Association and Museum’s Second Annual Prize Competition (juror, Grace Glueck of the New York Times), the South Shore Art Center’s All-New England Juried Exhibition (First Prize, Graphics), and the Two Rivers Momenta competition (Juror’s Prize awarded by Sharon Matt Atkins, Assistant Curator at the Currier Museum of Art). Beatty’s art has been purchased by public and private collections, including Fidelity Investments, the Washington Post, IBM, Eastman Pharmaceuticals, The New Republic, and Emily’s List. Her prints are in the 2004, 2006, and 2008 TRPS limited-edition portfolios purchased by the Boston Public Library, the Currier Museum of Art, Dartmouth’s Hood Museum, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, the University of Vermont’s Bailey/Howe Library (Special Collections), Plymouth State University, Southern New Hampshire University’s McIninch Gallery and The Waskomium Collection.
Beatty’s work can be seen at Two Rivers Printmaking Studio, McGowan Fine Art Gallery in Concord, New Hampshire, and F.H. Clothing in Quechee, Vermont.

Patty Castellini is known for her colorful abstract monotype prints. The Enfield, NH artist first discovered her love for printmaking when she began volunteering at AVA Art Center in Lebanon, NH -- a position which evolved into a twenty-five year teaching career.
Monotypes differ from other printmaking techniques because they are one-of-a-kind. Inks are applied to a plate, much like an artist would paint a canvas. The plate is then pressed into the paper, transferring the inks, to create the final print.
Castellini takes great delight in the creative process, both her own and that of her young students. She believes creating art is something that can engage everyone. She states, "It is this dual process of teaching and painting that adds so much meaning to my life."

Janet Cathey, lives in Randolph, VT, and teaches art to K-8th grade students in Strafford and Barnard, VT. She received a BA degree in Geology from Carleton College, Northfield, MN, andK - 12 Certification to teach Art from Upper Valley Educators Institute.
Type of Work: Monoprints and Block Prints
Artist Statement: My inspiration, like many artists, comes from patterns and shapes in the natural world, from microscopic organisms such as pollen grains to landforms such as meandering rivers. I’m also inspired by the children that I teach. I admire the freedom with which young children approach art making.
My purpose is to experiment. I constantly try new printmaking processes. Recreating an effect is usually not successful and not necessary for me. I currently make many-layered prints. I combine relief and collograph printmaking, and the result is one of a kind monoprints. I like to collage, sew, paint, and draw on many of my prints.
I started making bird block prints so that I could create a bird calendar as a gift to one of my sons, who works with raptors. I have gone beyond 12 bird images!

I make intaglio prints from zinc and copper plates. From many immersions into the acid that peels and gnaws the layers of metal until there is almost a geological world created of rising bench marks and descending valleys, These are held up by various densities of wax and varnish so that in successions aging and time are embedded.
