Through May 28: Paper with Attitude exhibit

A new exhibit highlighting paper art will debut at the Wayne Theatre on March 2.

Paper with Attitude explores the artwork of six Virginia artists: Rebecca Humphrey, Deborah O’Keeffe, Sherry Trachtman, Gibby Waitzkin, Angie Wiggins and Saaraliisa Ylitalio.

An opening reception will be held at the theatre on Thursday, March 9, from 5-7 p.m.

“Each of the artists selected to exhibit shares a different story of why they are working with paper,” curator Liz Moss said. “All have a unique vision and approach using techniques that include shaping paper pulp combined with natural dyes, organic fibers, mixed media and found objects, and recycled paper.

“We hope that experiencing the collective mastery of this body of work will encourage viewers to embrace the limitless possibilities of paper.”

The origin of paper art can be traced back over a thousand years and was discovered in many different cultures and forms including paper folding, book-making, and as complex cutting techniques such as Scherenschitte.

The use of paper as an art medium has continued to evolve and provides unlimited creativity and powerful forms of expression for artists as they push the boundaries of imagination.

The exhibit runs through May 28, 2017.
