This paper-centric exhibition will focus on how paper can be utilized in art. Last held at the Foundry in 2013, this juried exhibition is open to all artists who utilize paper as an integral component of expression. We want to ask artists how they push this ancient, tactile experience of using paper to create book arts, sculptures, and other forms of fine art. All two and three dimensional work will be considered.
Entries due October 4

ABOUT THE JUROR
Sukanya Mani is an interdisciplinary artist with a passion in science, philosophy and exploring issues of gender and femininity. She takes complex ideas from those fields, builds stories around them and presents them in a visual art form. While her brain enjoys reading and gathering information about various subjects, her heart weaves them into visual stories which she then presents to the viewer. Her studio practice involves the art of cutting and sculpting paper. Creating these pieces is a meditative experience for her.
