The Art of Paper
Curated by Lesley Lundgren
Sept 8–Oct 31, 2020
Mansion at Strathmore
Paper has a myriad of functional uses, from currency to office supplies to packing materials. Artists have long covered paper with ink, pastel, and watercolor. However, in Paper Works, artists elevate the material in innovative ways. Through cutting, quilling, or sculptural folding, paper becomes more than a surface for an image—it becomes the art itself.
We look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Mansion for this landmark exhibition two years in the making.
Generous support for this exhibition is provided by Karen Lefkowitz and Al Neyman.
