Bucks County landscape artist Smita Rao's work is on display at the Carversville Grocery through the month of July. This fine exhibit features a series of monoprints that capture ethereal moments in time and place. The technique of monoprints is a printing method that involves painting on a plexiglass plate; they are essentially printed paintings. As a result of this method each print is a unique spontaneous expression that combines printmaking, painting and drawing media. The following information is from Smita Rao's website :
