Sue Scott Gallery is pleased to announce Paper A-Z, opening March 16th, and running through April 22, 2011. Featuring more than seventy five established, mid-career and emerging artists from around the country, this exhibition showcases multidisciplinary approaches to works on paper that examine and celebrate this basic language of the artistic process. “A-Z” implies linearity, but the heart of the show is a constellation of parts that drifts off the alphabet, a collection of phonemes—gaffs, folds, stutters, perfect pronunciations and alliterations.
Drawing naturally emerges from an immediate relationship of the artist's hand with the instrument or medium. This arrangement can invite risk and produce spontaneous and often unintentional results. This is drawing’s clearest articulation: the serif ‘a’ of the alphabet. This exhibition also looks beyond this customary notion of drawing, while preserving the traditional support of paper - experimental prints, collage, paper construction, hanging paper sculptures, cast paper and books. The show considers the role of paper, not only as a vehicle of mediums, but as a medium itself.
