This inaugural offering for 2011, curated by Shayne Wulbert, features the imaginative abstract paintings of Bruce Thorn and K.A. Letts and the unique cut paper work of Richard Shipps.
The exhibition runs from January 14 through February 26, 2011. An opening reception was held on January 21 at the gallery.
There will be a closing reception for "INTENSITY" Friday, February 25th from 5:00 to 8:30pm.
The incoming show, "Big Paper", features the unusual cut paper works of four artists - Allison Svoboda, Tanya Hastings Gill, Reni Gower and Richard Shipps. Each artist has a unique approach to the use of paper as art. Paper's role in society has changed dramatically with recent advancements in digital technology. Paper is simultaneously precious and disposable, obsolete and new. These artists explore the nature of paper in new ways, invoking traditional paper cutting traditions and discovering new modes of expression. Curated by Shayne Wulbert.
